Seattle — Discovery Institute is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Gale L. Pooley to serve as a fellow with the Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty.
“Gale Pooley is the world leader in the most important movement in contemporary economics—based on the recognition that wealth is knowledge, money is time, and the only true prices are time prices,” said George Gilder, co-founder and senior fellow of Discovery Institute.
As an economist Pooley is known, along with Maurin Tupy, a senior policy analyst at the Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, for defining time-prices and the Pooley-Tupy Formula for measuring time-prices. Together the two economists devised a way to measure the “time price” of commodities—that is, the amount of time that a person has to work in order to earn enough money to buy something.
Dr. Pooley is an associate professor of business management at Brigham Young University-Hawaii. He also has taught at Alfaisal University in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and Boise State University. Dr. Pooley holds professional designation from the Appraisal Institute, the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the CCIM Institute.
