Please join me and congratulating Dr. Adam Martin, who just successfully defended his PhD thesis -- "The Use of Knowledge in Comparative Economic Systems."
Adam is as philosophically astute as any student to come through our PhD program at GMU. Adam came to us after studying with Sam Bostaph at the University of Dallas, and throughout his graduate student career Adam has pursued the history of ideas, methodology and philosophy of science as well as modern political economy. Adam took advantage of opportunities to think deeply about social cooperation with not only his close study of Mises and Hayek, but his close examination of the experimental research on personal and impersonal exchange by Vernon Smith and his colleagues, and the constitutional political economy of James Buchanan and Gordon Tullock. Adam made a particular effort to study Frank Knight's epistemology and economics. Finally, Adam was able to earn a pre-doctoral fellowship to study at Cambridge University with the social ontology group.
Adam is currently a post-doc fellow at the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University.
Welcome to the academic club Dr. Martin --- job well done. Now saturate the journals with your articles.
