Ben Stein Biography

Ben Stein is the most famous economics teacher in America. His comedic role as the droning economics teacher in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" has been ranked as one of the fifty most famous scenes in movie history, but aside from his acting career, Stein is a powerful speaker on economics, politics, education and history.

His extensive background includes being a lawyer for the poor in New Haven, a trade regulation lawyer for the FTV, a speechwriter for both President Nixon and Ford, a columnist, and an editorial writer for The Wall Street Journal. He later became a teacher of law and economics at UC Santa Cruz and Pepperdine.

Stein has co-written over 30 books with his colleague Phil DeMuth, specifically concentrating on investing, and ultimately resulting in numerous New York Times bestsellers. He wrote a column about economics for The New York Times for several years, and co-hosted the show Win Ben Stein's Money with Jimmy Kimmel, which earned seven Emmy's including Best Game Show Host.

He actively writes for a column at "The American Spectator" and for "NewsMax," while regularly appearing as a commentator on "Fox News," "CBS Sunday Morning," "CNN" and more.

He is considered one of the great humorists on political economy, and holds a bachelor's with honors in economics from Columbia, studied economics at the graduate level at Yale, and later graduated Yale Law School.

    Writer, commentator, columnist, teacher, economist, comedian and actor – Ben Stein is recognized around the globe for his insights and commentary on the world in which we live. One of the areas that Ben deeply understands and continually examines is the business of healthcare. Given today’s healthcare economy, Ben is excited to talk with audiences about timely topics such as: What are we doing in healthcare to deliver services with the highest possible quality at the lowest possible costs? How can we be more automated and accurate? With the days of “Big Data” upon us, how can we work together differently to share data among business partners in ways that are secure and efficient. Other industries have leveraged their supply chain as a foundational element in becoming more streamlined and highly cost-effective (think McDonalds, Walmart as key examples) – what will we do in healthcare to build similarly efficient models? In this session, Ben examines the state of healthcare today and in the future. While the debate may rage on about healthcare reform, there’s no doubt that healthcare must evolve. Ben will help attendees consider ways for providers and suppliers to work together to improve today’s healthcare environment.
