Tim Carney

Timothy P. Carney is a senior political columnist at the Washington Examiner and a visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Carney has more than a decade of experience as a journalist covering the intersection of politics and economics. 

Carney has served as the senior political columnist for the Washington Examiner since 2010. He previously served as a K Street Editor, and columnist for the Examiner. As a senior columnist, Carney releases an email newsletter to Examiner subscribers and has released a compilation of essays, “The Carneysian Lens,” focusing on corporatism, cronyism, and the revolving door in Washington. Through his columns, Carney exposes readers to how Washington really works, while focusing on local and global issues.

As an AEI visiting fellow, Carney helps direct the Culture of Competition Project, which examines barriers to competition in all areas of American life, from the economy to the world of ideas. His work at AEI focuses on how to reinvigorate a competitive culture in America in which all can reap the benefits of a fair economy.

Carney is also the author of “The Big Ripoff: How Big Business and Big Government Steal Your Money” and “Obamanomics: How Barack Obama is Bankrupting You and enriching His Wall Street Friends, Corporate Lobbyists, and Union Bosses.” Received with great praise, “Obamanomics” is described by Columnist Jonah Goldberg as “the indispensable field guide to the Obama years.” The book was a recipient of the 2008 Templeton Enterprise Award and the 2006 Lysander Spooner Award for Best Book on Liberty. 

Carney was born in Greenwich Village, NY and is one of four boys. He grew up in Pelham, NY and received his Bachelor of Arts from St. John’s College in Annapolis, MD.
