Some thoughts on the coal economy
Michael Hicks

I started my academic career in coal country, working in an economic research center at Marshall University in West Virginia. It was exciting work that touched on far more aspects of the coal industry than I thought existed.

That work made its way to Congress and to at least one Supreme Court case. Click here to read more.
