Atlanta—The Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) is proud to announce that noted editor, author, and journalist Jon Miltimore has joined FEE as its new Managing Editor. Beginning next week, Jon will work with Director of Content Dan Sanchez to coordinate the publication of FEE's daily articles, advancing our mission to use timely stories to teach the timeless principles of free-market economics, the philosophy of liberty, and the message of personal responsibility.
Serving previously as Director of Digital Media at Intellectual Takeout, Jon was responsible for daily editorial content, web strategy, and social media operations. Before that, he was the Senior Editor of The History Channel Magazine, Managing Editor at Scout.com, and general assignment reporter for the Panama City News Herald. Jon also served as an intern in the speechwriting department under George W. Bush.
Many of his own articles have been published on FEE.org. Highlights include “How Totalitarians Weaponize Loneliness”, “Were We Wrong About Addiction?”, “What Socrates Understood about Justice, Truth, and Power”, and “‘Brave New World’ Predicted Today’s Schooling Trends.”
“Jon’s editorial chops are top-notch, and he has a superb sense for what will have traction with readers,” said FEE’s Director of Content Dan Sanchez. “His entrepreneurial work style is a perfect fit for FEE, and he’s an absolutely sparkling writer. He’s going to have a wonderful impact on FEE.org’s educational content and reach.”
“Jon is known throughout the free-market educational world as a credible and thorough voice,” said Richard N. Lorenc, FEE’s Executive Vice President. “Adding his voice to the content viewed by millions annually on FEE.org is very special.”
FEE has been a leading non-profit organization in teaching the principles of a free society since its founding in 1946 by Leonard E. Read. Today, FEE focuses on introducing freedom as a life philosophy to young newcomers, striving to bring about a world in which the economic, ethical and legal principles of a free society are familiar, credible, and compelling to the next generation. FEE produces the annual FEEcon event, student seminars, free online courses, classroom resources, and engaging classic and contemporary content available at FEE.org and on social media. FEE is supported solely by contributions from individuals, private foundations, and businesses and by the sale of our publications. We invite you to advance liberty with us at FEE.org.
