Thomas Woods      

Leading Libertarian Thought Leader, American Historian, Political Analyst & New York Times Bestselling Author

Known for his cultivated expertise and unvarnished views on American history, contemporary politics and economics, Thomas Woods is recognized as a notable proponent of the Austrian School of Economics and one of the libertarian movement’s brightest and most prolific scholars.

An accomplished academic, Woods has a penchant for debunking common historical and political myths, and educating society on libertarianism and topics ranging from war to capitalism to the Federal Reserve. A senior fellow of the Ludwig von Mises Institute, he is also the creator of Tom Woods’ Liberty Classroom, a pay-for-access educational website that offers audio and video content on topics in history, economics and philosophy, and the host of the popular weekday podcast, The Tom Woods Show. He is also a contributing editor of The American Conservative magazine.

The New York Times bestselling author of 12 books, Woods’ most recent, Real Dissent: A Libertarian Sets Fire to the Index Card of Allowable Opinion is hailed as a ‘must read’ by Barrons, and features a foreword from former Congressman Ron Paul prior to Woods demolishing some of the toughest critics of libertarianism in his trademark way.

A frequent media guest, he has appeared on leading outlets, including CNBC, MSNBC, FOX Business Network, C-SPAN, and Bloomberg Television, and radio programs, including NPR, the Dennis Miller Show and the Michael Reagan Show; he is also a regular substitute host on The Peter Schiff Show.
