St. Barnabas Hance Awardee & Guest Speaker 

Ben Stein is the most famous economics teacher in America. His comedic role as the droning economics teacher in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” has been ranked as one of the 50 most famous scenes in movie history.

But in real life, Ben Stein is a powerful speaker on economics, politics, education, history and motivation and is considered one of the great humorists on political economy and how life works in this nation.

He has a bachelor’s degree with honors in economics from Columbia, studied economics at Yale, and he is a graduate of Yale Law School, and has as diverse a resume as any man in America.

Stein’s background includes … poverty lawyer for the poor in New Haven, trade regulation lawyer for the Federal Trade Commission, speech writer for Presidents Nixon and Ford, columnist and editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal, teacher about law and economics at the University of California, Santa Cruz and Pepperdine.

He has written or co-written 30 books, mostly about investing, with his colleague,
Phil DeMuth, many of which are New York Times bestsellers.  Their book, 
“Yes, You Can Time the Market” has become a landmark of using price theory for securities market analysis.

He was the co-host, along with Jimmy Kimmel, of the path breaking Comedy Central game show, “Win Ben Stein’s Money,” which won seven Emmies. 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.

We hope you can join us for this special event!
