"No government of the left has done as much for the poor as capitalism has. Even when it comes to the redistribution of income, the left talks the talk but the free market walks the walk. What do the poor most need? They need to stop being poor. And how can that be done, on a mass scale, except by an economy that creates vastly more wealth? Yet the political left has long had a remarkable lack of interest in how wealth is created. As far as they are concerned, wealth exists somehow and the only interesting question is how to redistribute it." ~ Thomas Sowell
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.
