Ed Crane is the founder and president of the Cato Institute.
Under his leadership, Cato has grown to become one of the nation’s most prominent public policy research organizations. Crane has been a pioneer in framing the political debate as one, not between liberal and conservative, but rather between civil society (the voluntary sector) and political society (government power).
Crane was at the forefront of promoting personal accounts for Social Security reform and was one of the first national leaders of the term limits movement. He is the coeditor of several books, publisher of Regulation magazine, and is a member of the Mont Pelerin Society.
He is a chartered financial analyst and former vice president at Alliance Capital Management Corp. Crane’s writing has been published in the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times and Forbes. He has been interviewed on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition and Talk of the Nation, C-SPAN’s Washington Journal, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, and other national media. Crane holds a B.S. from the University of California, Berkeley and an MBA from the University of Southern California.
“I have known Ed Crane for thirty years, and every time I hear or read him, I learn something new and important.” – John McClaughry (Vice President, EAI)
The Sheraton Economic Series is sponsored by the Ethan Allen Institute, hosted by the Sheraton Burlington Conference Center, and cosponsored by the Vermont Economy Newsletter, Vermont Business Magazine, Vermont Tiger, True North Radio, and the Lake Champlain Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Great speaker! I liked his optimism on our ability to turn things around. Often times we hear to much talk about what’s wrong and how hopeless it seems, but Ed spoke as if there is hope and that’s what we need now.
