Fred Smith


I am the founder and now director of the Center for Advancing Capitalism at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a Washington-based public policy group that promotes limited government, reduced regulation and sound environmental policy. I graduated from Tulane University with degrees in political science and theoretical mathematics and am a prolific writer and speaker on topics ranging from economic theory to values-based communications. My work has been featured in numerous newspapers and scholarly journals, and I have contributed chapters to more than a dozen books.
The author is a Forbes contributor. The opinions expressed are those of the writer.

I work to reduce regulation and expose its enormous costs.
