Jamie Bryan Hall was the first in his family to go to college, but he took to academia like a fish to water. At Harvard University, he earned not one but two degrees: one in applied mathematics, and the other in statistics.
Now seasoned by stints with the CIA, the Council of Economic Advisers, the National Security Council, and the for-profit sector, Hall today is recognized by his peers as a quantitative analyst par excellence. He has put those skills to work at Heritage, crunching numbers to expose the flaws in leftist policy.
Hall has written frequently on the importance of skills-based immigration and the need to optimize linkage between our immigration and welfare systems. His research has also exposed exaggerations in the government’s poverty statistics, taxpayer-subsidized waste in the higher education system, and misleading information from abortion providers.
