Meet David Brat, the Giant-Killer Who Knocked Off Eric Cantor

posted on June 11, 2014

“Who is David Brat, the slayer of a goliath of congressional politics, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor?” asks Frank James at NPR. Brat, who received a master’s degree from Princeton Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. from American University, teaches economics and ethics at Randolph-Macon College in Virginia. “Some of Brat’s scholarly work combines his interests in religious faith and economics,” James reports, including a book project on “Ethics as a Leading Economic Indicator? What Went Wrong? Notes on the Judeo-Christian Tradition and Human Reason” and a paper titled “An Analysis of the Moral Foundations in Ayn Rand.”
