Economic Liberties Executive Director to Depart for Role at FTC

March 6, 2023 Press Release

Washington, D.C. — The American Economic Liberties Project today announced that Executive Director Sarah Miller will accept a role as Special Advisor to the Chair at the Federal Trade Commission.

“I’m grateful for the opportunity to return to public service to serve as an advisor to Chair Khan, and look forward to working with the talented staff at the FTC as they carry out the agency’s critically important mission,” said Sarah Miller. “Although I’m stepping down as Executive Director of the American Economic Liberties Project, I’m confident that the team will continue to produce rigorous, groundbreaking policy analysis and build on its central role in the growing anti-monopoly movement.”

Recognized by The New York Times as being “central to making the issue [of antitrust] prominent,” Sarah Miller has led Economic Liberties since founding the organization in February 2020. Under Miller’s leadership, Economic Liberties has quickly become a hub for anti-monopoly expertise and advocacy, supporting policymakers and enforcers at the federal, state, and local level. Miller has been a regular advisor to policymakers at all levels of government, serving on President Joe Biden’s transition team and, prior to launching Economic Liberties, as the Deputy Director of the Open Markets Institute. Previously, she served as a Senior Advisor at the Treasury Department during the Obama administration and in several roles at the Center for American Progress.

“In 2020, Sarah Miller founded Economic Liberties with a bold vision, one that imagined centering a populist, pro-entrepreneur, anti-monopolist platform in the country’s economic agenda. In just three years, that vision has come to life, taking root in the White House, Congress, and in local state houses across the nation,” said Ross Baird, Chair of the American Economic Liberties Project’s Board of Directors. “We are tremendously proud of Sarah’s accomplishments at Economic Liberties and wish her all the best as she carries this vision forward in a new, vital role at the Federal Trade Commission.”

The American Economic Liberties Project will share updates in coming weeks as its Board of Directors finalizes plans to replace Miller as Executive Director.

The American Economic Liberties Project works to ensure America’s system of commerce is structured to advance, rather than undermine, economic liberty, fair commerce, and a secure, inclusive democracy. Economic Liberties believes true economic liberty means entrepreneurs and businesses large and small succeed on the merits of their ideas and hard work; commerce empowers consumers, workers, farmers, and engineers instead of subjecting them to discrimination and abuse from financiers and monopolists; foreign trade arrangements support domestic security and democracy; and wealth is broadly distributed to support equitable political power.
