Stephen Moore at February Meeting

Stephen Moore, member of the editorial board and senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal will be our speaker at the next monthly meeting of the Bastiat Society.

Mr. Moore focuses on economic issues, including budget, tax and monetary policy. A frequent contributor to the Journal over the years, Stephen has also written for Human Events, Reader's Digest, Chief Executive Magazine, and many other publications.

He was the founder and first president of the Club for Growth, which raises money for political candidates who favor free-market economic policies. Just prior to joining the Journal, Stephen was president of a new organization, the Free Enterprise Fund (founded by Bastiat Society board member Mallory Factor).

He has appeared on many national TV shows, including CNN's Inside Politics, Crossfire, and Moneyline, NBC's Nightly News, Fox Morning News, and The McLaughlin Group. Stephen has served as a senior economist on the Congressional Joint Economic Committee, as a budget expert for the Heritage Foundation, and as a senior economics fellow at the Cato Institute, where he published dozens of studies on federal and state tax and budget policy.

He was research director for President Reagan's Commission on Privatization. He is the author of five books, including (with the late Julian Simon) "It's Getting Better All The Time: 100 Greatest Trends of the Past 100 Years" and most recently "Bullish on Bush: How the Ownership Society Is Making America Richer." He graduated from the University of Illinois and holds a masters degree in economics from George Mason University.
