Who’s Your Favorite Libertarian Financial Guru?

Mark Skousen

Named one of the "Top 20 Living Economists," Dr. Skousen is a professional economist, investment expert, university professor, and author of more than 25 books.

“Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”


— Disney’s “Snow White”

Almost 2,000 people already have voted for their favorite libertarian in the just-released survey sponsored by FreedomFest and Newsmax magazine. The survey is to find “The Top 50 Most Influential Libertarians.” Choose among your favorites in politics, business, the media, authors and think tanks. Think Ron Paul, John Stossel, Judge Andrew Napolitano, the Koch Brothers, Steve Forbes and John Mackey.

The final listing will be announced at FreedomFest this July 19-22 in Las Vegas, followed by its publication in Newsmax magazine.


Plenty of your favorite financial gurus are listed and include Alex Green, Peter Schiff, Doug Casey, Keith Fitz-Gerald, Rick Santelli and even yours truly.

Your vote counts! Take the survey here and pass it along to friends and colleagues. I think it is going to create a lot of buzz: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FFNewsmax50Lib.

Important Note: People do not have to give their email address to take the survey. That’s a plus for those who don’t want to provide an email address.

It is fun seeing who people are voting for. Lots of people are commenting about the survey on social media. And Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute did a very clever review of the survey: https://danieljmitchell.wordpress.com/2017/02/21/vote-for-the-most-influential-libertarians/.

In the survey, we suggest you choose five in each category. But actually, you can vote for as many people as you wish.

When you are finished, you can see instantly who’s in the Top 50 so far.

The final list is going to be announced at this year’s FreedomFest, our 10th anniversary, and then published by Newsmax magazine with grand fanfare. Spread the word!

We’re also planning a special photograph of the Top 50 Libertarians on Friday, July 21, at FreedomFest, right before William Shatner speaks. You don’t want to miss this historic event of all your great libertarian heroes.
