Open Markets Congratulates American Economic Liberties Project on Its Launch

Economic Liberties’ Executive Director Sarah Miller Was Previously the Deputy Director of Open Markets Institute

WASHINGTON – The Open Markets Institute warmly congratulates the American Economic Liberties Project – headed by Sarah Miller, previously the deputy director of the Open Markets Institute – on its launch today.

“We are very excited to have been able to support the development of the Economic Liberties Project,” said Barry Lynn, executive director of the Open Markets Institute. “Sarah is a key voice in the resurgence of antitrust. We look forward to seeing her grow and foster a new organization dedicated to running tough campaigns against powerful corporations. The Economic Liberties Project is an important addition to the fast-growing network of organizations designed to tackle America’s monopoly crisis, and we look forward to working closely with Sarah in the months to come.”

“Ironically, it was a Google search for ‘monopolies in America’ that first led me to the work of Barry and the rest of the Open Markets team,” said Sarah Miller, executive director of Economic Liberties. “Barry taught us the history and intricacies of the dead language of anti-monopoly that has come roaring back to prominence because of the work of the Open Markets Institute. I’m so grateful for the education I received at Open Markets and for the opportunity to help advance what has unmistakably grown into a broader movement.”

The American Economic Liberties Project is a new organization dedicated to fighting against concentrated corporate power to realize economic liberty for all, in support of a secure, inclusive democratic society. Learn more about the project at www.economicliberties.us.
