The 2018 Insider 100: Policymakers

July 4, 2018

It’s counter intuitive really in New Jersey to even compose a list of wonks.

The state so often – even routinely – prides itself on primitivism, and those sub-human, profane interactions that fall only very loosely within the rubric of politics. And yet – don’t laugh – we have our deep thinkers here, and yes they aren’t all sequestered on college campuses with the blinds drawn and one-way tickets out of here in the top drawers. Some of them roam freely, in fact, at the Statehouse, testing their intellects out in the arena of realpolitik.

This is InsiderNJ’s second such list of New Jersey’s top policymakers, and you’ll find that it contains several plot points and twists differentiating it from last year’s inaugural list.

Bloustein School faculty are again part of the list. University Professor Ray Caprio at #45, Distinguished Professor Carl Van Horn at #86, and Senior Policy Fellow Marc Pfeiffer at #93. All of the individuals selected for the list are noted for the work they do outside of elected office as they seek to expand the capacities of our collective policy square.
