About Tate Watkins
Tate Watkins is a freelance journalist in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. He writes about economic development, foreign aid, and immigration, among other things. His work has appeared in a variety of outlets, including Reason magazine, Wired.com, GOOD, The American Interest, The Christian Science Monitor, and RealClearPolicy.
Watkins grew up in Nashville, TN, received M.A. and B.A. degrees in economics from Clemson University, lived in rural Senegal for a year while in the Peace Corps, and spent two years researching economics and public policy in Washington, D.C.
He laments that some people take offense to the honorific “ma’am,” had a harder time figuring out how to wear a scarf during D.C. winters than learning how to tie a bow tie, and touts the merits of eating lunch alone.
