Introducing the Bastiat Society of England
Our chapter director, Martin Cox, hopes to start events this November.
Martin is also director of the John Locke Institute, an Oxford-based independent educational organisation that offers residential academic courses in the humanities and social sciences. Born in the U.K., Martin was raised in Jamaica, the United States and Australia.
Martin worked in investment banking, and as an entrepreneur and non-executive company director in the transport and retail sectors, and in education and management consulting. From 2001 until 2003 Martin was chief executive of ICC Australia, and a member of the governing body of the Paris-based International Chamber of Commerce.
In 2005 Martin took a break from his career to read philosophy, politics and economics as a mature student at the University of Oxford. He then helped to establish the International Growth Centre, a joint venture between Oxford and the London School of Economics, which works with senior government figures in Africa and Asia to develop pro-growth policies. Martin was a tutor and lecturer in undergraduate economics at the University of Oxford between 2009 and 2013.
In his current role at the John Locke Institute, Martin gives visiting lectures on economics, ethics and public policy at schools and universities in Britain and America, and he teaches economics on the Institute’s courses.
Martin plays classical and jazz trumpet, Australian Rules football and cricket. He is married to Rosemary, a primary school teacher in Oxford, and they have three children, Sebastian, Jemima and William. In 2013 Martin was appointed honorary Lieutenant Colonel by Governor Nathan Deal of the U.S. State of Georgia.
Look for events starting soon.
