Center of the American Experiment adds second economist with new hire Martha Njolomole

Center of the American Experiment is deepening its focus on economic policy and analysis with the addition of economist Martha Njolomole to its policy staff. Martha earned a Master of Arts in economics at Troy University in Alabama, where she worked as a research assistant on several projects that advanced the ideas of economic freedom and individual liberty.

Martha’s upbringing in Malawi, a developing country, helped her develop a passion for contributing to research on the social and economic advancement of economically disadvantaged people. Her major research interests include public policy, political economy, institutions, and development. Her recent work includes an analysis of the impact of microfinance on entrepreneurship, policy prescriptions for institutional reform in developing nations, and an examination of legislative proposals to measure their impact on economic freedom in the United States.

Martha added, “I am excited to continue my research journey in Minnesota and hope to make an impact on the state’s policy making process. I look forward to creating more opportunities for all Minnesotans to thrive by contributing to Center of the American Experiment’s growing body of economic research.”
