Ben Stein: America’s Economic Future

Tuesday, February 26, 2019 @ 3:00pm
The Society of the Four Arts

Ben Stein is one of the most famous economics teachers in America, and his comedic role as the droning economics teacher in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986) is ranked as one of the 50 most famous scenes in movie history. In real life, Ben Stein is a powerful speaker on economics, politics, education and history, and is considered one of the great humorists on political economy and how life works.

Stein has a bachelor’s degree with honors in economics from Columbia, and is a graduate of Yale Law School (1970) where he was elected valedictorian by his classmates. He has been a poverty lawyer, trade regulation lawyer for the FTC, speech writer for Presidents Nixon and Ford, columnist and editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, and a teacher of law and economics.

He has written or co-written roughly 30 books, mostly about investing, with his colleague, Phil DeMuth, many of them New York Times best-sellers. Their “Yes, You Can Time The Market” has become a landmark of using price theory for securities market analysis. He wrote an economics column for The New York Times for several years, roughly 2004-2009, and he was the co-host, along with Jimmy Kimmel, of the game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” which won seven Emmys. Presently, he writes a column for The American Spectator and for NewsMax, and is a regular commentator on Fox News and on CBS Sunday Morning, as well as a frequent commentator on CNN.

Tickets go on sale at 2:30 p.m. on the day of the event.
