This former Republican presidential candidate, valued for his bold ideas and entrepreneurial spirit, is one of the most well respected economic prognosticators of our time.  As President and CEO of Forbes, Inc. and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine, Steve Forbes runs the nation’s foremost business magazine and respected publishing empire

Forbes recently mounted a vigorous campaign for the 2000 GOP Presidential race.  Although he withdrew in February 2000, his campaign is widely credited for its strong influence on the national debate.   According to the Wall Street Journal,  “Without Mr. Forbes’ ideas, indeed, neither John McCain nor George W. Bush would have had much of an agenda of his own this year.”  Key to his platform was a flat tax that’s a tax cut, a retirement security system, a power to parents plan and medical savings accounts. 

Forbes continues to promote his agenda as Honorary Chairman of Americans for Hope Growth and Opportunity, a grassroots, issues advocacy organization founded to advance pro-growth, pro-freedom and pro-family issues. 

Steve Forbes was born on July 18, 1947 in Morristown, NJ.   He graduated cum laude in 1966 from Brooks School in North Andover MA.  He received a BA in History from Princeton in 1970.  At Princeton, he was the founding editor of Business Today, which became the country’s largest magazine published by students for students, with a circulation of 200,000.   The magazine continues to be published today by Princeton undergraduates

Forbes assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Magazine  in 1990.  Since that time, Forbes, Inc. has expanded with the launch of a variety of new publications. Forbes writes editorials for each issue of Forbes under the heading of “Fact and Comment.”  A widely respected economic forecaster, he has appeared on many national new programs including “The McNeil/Lehrer Newshour,” “The Nightly Business Report” and “Wall Street Week.”

 Forbes now serves on the Board of Trustees of Princeton University, as well as on the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, The American Enterprise Institute and the National Taxpayers Union.  He is also on the Board of Overseeres of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
