Ben Stein
can be seen talking about finance on Fox TV news every week and writing about it regularly in The New York Times Sunday business section. No wonder: Not only is he the son of the world-famous economist and government adviser Herbert Stein, but Ben is a respected economist in his own right. He received his B.A. with honors in economics from Columbia University in 1966, studied the subject in the graduate school of economics at Yale while he earned his law degree there, and worked as an economist for the Department of Commerce.

Ben is known to many as a movie and television personality, especially from Ferris Bueller's Day Off and his long-running quiz show, Win Ben Stein's Money, but he's probably worked more in personal and corporate finance than anything else. He's written about finance for Barron's and The Wall Street Journal for decades. He was one of the chief busters of the junk-bond frauds of the 1980s, has been a longtime critic of corporate executives' self-dealing, and has written three self-help books about personal finance. He frequently travels the country speaking about finance in both serious and humorous ways.
