Virgil Storr is vice president, Academic & Student Programs and Don C. Lavoie Senior Fellow with the F. A. Hayek Program for Advanced Study in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, and associate professor of economics at George Mason University.

Dr. Storr's book on the Bahamas' economic culture, Enterprising Slaves & Master Pirates, was published by Peter Lang. In it, he argues that two ideal typical entrepreneurs dominate the economic life in the Bahamas: the enterprising slave (encouraging Bahamian businessmen to work hard, to be creative and to be productive) and the master pirate (demonstrating how success is more easily attained through cunning and deception). His writings in political economy have been published or are forthcoming in The Cambridge Journal of Economics, The American Journal of Economics and Sociology, The Review of Austrian Economics, and several other scholarly publications.

Dr. Storr received his Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University and his B.A. from Beloit College. Born and raised in the Bahamas, Dr. Storr now lives in Washington, DC, with his wife Nona Martin. His personal web page may be found at http://virgilstorr.org/.
