AFF Community

Chapter Leader Profile: Meg Tuszynski

By: Roger Custer

Dr. Meg Tuszynski recently graduated from George Mason University.

Her dissertation focused on the problematic incentives built into public aid programs, and the role ideas have played in the expansion of the welfare state.

She also earned her MA in economics at George Mason in 2015, and a dual BA in philosophy and economics from the same school in 2011. Her research interests include Austrian economics, Public Choice, New Institutional economics, and economic freedom.  While in the DC area, Meg was the program manager for the Spending and Budget Initiative at the Mercatus Center.

In 2016, she and her husband moved to Dallas, where she became chapter leader of AFF Dallas and a research associate for the State and Local Policy Project at the O’Neil Center for Global Markets and Freedom, located on the Southern Methodist University campus.

Meg writes, “Before moving to Dallas, I spent nine years living in the DC area – where opportunities to connect with fellow liberty lovers were omnipresent. Upon relocating here, I was overjoyed to find that there was a vibrant liberty crowd in the area. AFF has an important role to play here in connecting like-minded individuals to both one another, and to opportunities in the area.”
