Miles Kimball holds the Eaton Chair in Economics at the University of Colorado Boulder, and is Emeritus Professor of Economics and Survey Research of the University of Michigan. (Born in 1960, he is now 57.) He is also a Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics at the University of Colorado Boulder and an Affiliate of the Behavioral and Health Genomics Center at the University of Southern California.
Politically, Miles is an independent who grew up in an apolitical family. He holds many strong opinions—open to revision in response to cogent arguments—that do not line up neatly with either the Republican or Democratic Party.
