Ludwig M. Lachmann Research Fellows

Ludwig M. Lachmann Research Fellows spend up to three years at CPNSS carring out research on philosophical, foundational or conceptual aspects of economics.

 

Matthew D Adler

Matthew D. Adler is the Richard A. Horvitz Professor of Law and Professor of Economics, Philosophy and Public Policy at Duke University.  His scholarship is interdisciplinary, drawing from law, welfare economics and normative ethics. Adler is the author of numerous articles and several books, including New Foundations of Cost-Benefit Analysis (Harvard, 2006; co-authored with Eric Posner); and Well-Being and Fair Distribution: Beyond Cost-Benefit Analysis(Oxford 2012) which systematically defends the “social welfare function” as a framework for policy analysis.  He is the editor (with Marc Fleurbaey) of the Oxford Handbook of Well-Being and Public Policy(2016).   Starting this year, Adler will be an editor of the journal Economics and Philosophy.

Prior to joining the Duke Law faculty in July 2012, Adler was the Leon Meltzer Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law. He holds a B.A. and J.D. from Yale University. Adler also received an M. Litt. in modern history from St. Antony’s College at Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar. He clerked for Judge Harry Edwards of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in 1991-1992 and for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor during the 1992-1993 term.
