Jim Harper

Director of Information Policy Studies at the Cato Institute

A nationally recognized privacy, Internet, and technology policy expert, Jim has testified in Congress a half-dozen times and in state legislatures nationwide. He advises the U.S. Department of Homeland Security on privacy issues, and his book Identity Crisis: How Identification is Overused and Misunderstood made him a leading fighter against a U.S. national identity system. Jim's legislation tracking site sometimes rakes in more than ten dollars a day using Google AdSense.
