John A. Miller
Areas of Expertise & Civic Involvements
Miller’s recent research interests have focused on three areas: debates about globalization, especially about sweatshops, labor standards and poverty alleviation; state tax policy and how to make it progressive and adequate; and writing popular articles about macroeconomics and financial stability (e.g. the Great Recession and the sluggish economic recovery), tax and budget policies, and globalization. In addition to being a leader and past president of the American Association of University Professors chapter at Wheaton College, where he has worked since 1979, he is involved in his local community. Over the years, he has worked with several Boston-based economic justice groups, including United For a Fair Economy, Boston Uncut, and the Dollars & Sense economic forum at Occupy Boston. Miller is also a supporter of Bikes Not Bombs, a Boston-based group that works with inner-city youth refurbishing bicycles and then distributing them in Boston and in the developing world.
