He was a columnist at Forbes, and has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Investor’s Business Daily, and more.

Caplan, a professor of economics at George Mason University, is taking the negative. He’s The New York Times bestselling author of The Myth of the Rational Voter, Selfish Reasons to Have More KidsThe Case Against Education, and more.
