Jim McTague

Jim McTague has been Washington Editor of Barron’s Magazine since 1994–a post that gives him privileged access to key players throughout Washington and Wall Street. A credentialed White House and Capitol Hill correspondent, he’s covered every administration since the first President Bush. He has appeared on NBC, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, FOX, and is a frequent guest on FOX Business News. McTague’s extensive analysis of the underground economy in 2005 exploded the myth that illegal aliens were a small percentage of the U.S. population, triggering today’s border security debate.
