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" is by far the most widely viewed scene of economics teaching in economics history and has been ranked as one of the fifty most famous scenes in movie history. But in real life, Ben Stein is a powerful speaker on economics, politics, education and history and motivation--and like his father, Herbert Stein, considered one of the great humorists on political economy and how life works in this nation.

Stein in real life has a bachelor's with honors in economics from Columbia, studied econ at the graduate level at Yale, is a graduate of Yale Law School. Much more important, Ben Stein is morally committed to making your meeting a success and bringing his extensive background to bring out the most powerful and funniest trends in current history.

Stein has written or co-written roughly 30 books, mostly about investing, with his brilliant colleague, Phil DeMuth, many of them New York Times bestsellers. His and Dr. DeMuth's book, "Yes, You Can Time The Market" has become a landmark of using price theory for securities market analysis. He wrote a column about economics for The New York Times for several years, roughly 2004-2009.

He was the co-host, along with Jimmy Kimmel, of the pathbreaking Comedy Central game show, "Win Ben Stein's Money," which won seven Emmies, including ones for Ben and Jimmy for best game show host. Presently, he writes a column for The American Spectator and for NewsMax, and is a regular commentator on Fox News and on CBS Sunday Morning, as well as a frequent commentator on CNN.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 45 years, Alexandra, two dogs and six cats.

  • Healthcare

    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.
