Michael Cox serves as Executive in Residence at the Bridwell Institute for Economic Freedom at SMU and is formerly the Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, where he served for 25 years advising the President on monetary and other economic policies.  He holds the unique distinction of being the Federal Reserve System’s only Chief Economist in history.
