"In Washington, D.C. it costs $7,000 in city fees to open a pushcart. In California, up to eighty federal and state licenses are required to open a small business. In New York, a medallion to operate a taxicab costs $150,000. More than 700 occupations in the United States require a government license. Throughout the country, church soup kitchens for the homeless are being closed by departments of health. No wonder so many people turn to crime and violence to survive." ~ Jarret Wollstein
A prolific writer of nearly 60 books, best known for A Lodging of Wayfaring Men – a philosophical novel Reason Magazine called, "Atlas Shrugged for the new millennium".
In a previous life, a successful engineering career saw him called as an expert witness in numerous legal cases and a consultant to high profile organizations like NASA and the US military. He developed and taught continuing-education courses for Iowa State University’s College of Engineering. He also co-founded the Fiber Optic Association and wrote the first ever standard for the installation of fiber optic cables.
And while he now spends his days as an adventure capitalist and regular speaker at many free-thinker events, his real passion is Freeman's Perspective – as both industry legends and current subscribers can attest to.
