He has taught at Columbia Business School, worked for the government (CIA), non-profits (president of FEE), and been a consultant to IBM.
He has written for the Wall Street Journal and a regular column for Forbes magazine. He is the author of over 25 books, including The Making of Modern Economics and The Maxims of Wall Street.
