Daniel Bunn (MA Econ Pol, 2012): Legislative Correspondent for Senator Tim Scott from South Carolina, Washington DC, USA

April 8, 2015

My time at CEU provided me with a great opportunity to learn how to communicate and work with policy-makers. The importance of argument formulation and brevity was definitely taught well, and I have benefited greatly from being able to put both my analysis and recommendations all in a few bullet points. I have also greatly appreciated the significant exposure to the academic literature CEU provided. The importance of having significant research (and not just political considerations) to back up a recommendation is often ignored in many senate offices, and I have worked hard to include it in my own work. The ability to read, understand, contextualize and summarize an economic research paper is something I am very thankful to have learned at CEU.”
