Charles J. Wheelan

Senior Lecturer in Economics

In addition to my work at Dartmouth, I’ve spent time as a speechwriter, a correspondent for The Economist, and a Congressional candidate and in other policy-related positions that inform my academic work. My goal is to make important academic ideas understandable to the broadest possible audience and to use these powerful ideas to address real social challenges.
