Steve Forbes is Chairman and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes Media. The company encompasses Forbes, ForbesLife, ForbesWoman and Forbes Asia magazines; the Web sites Forbes.com, Investopedia.com, RealClearPolitics.com, RealClearMarkets.com, RealClearSports.com, and Forbes.com Business & Finance Blog Network; and 10 international licensee editions. Forbes’ publications together reach more than five million readers globally, and its Web sites reach nearly 40 million users each month. A widely respected economic prognosticator, he is the only writer to have won the highly prestigious Crystal Owl Award four times. The prize was formerly given by U.S. Steel Corporation to the financial journalist whose economic forecasts for the coming year proved most accurate. In both 1996 and 2000, Forbes campaigned vigorously for the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Key to his platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits and a strong national defense. Forbes’ latest book is “Reviving America: How Repealing Obamacare, Replacing the Tax Code and Reforming The Fed will Restore Hope and Prosperity.” Forbes writes editorials for each issue of Forbes under the heading of “Fact and Comment.”
