About the Author
Gilder is perhaps known best for his 1981 book, Wealth and Poverty, which became an instant classic, truly serving as the supply-side economics bible of the Reagan revolution. The book, a New York Times bestseller, has sold more than a million copies since its initial release. According to a study of presidential speeches, Gilder was President Reagan’s most frequently quoted living author. In 1986, President Reagan gave George Gilder the White House Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence.
His New York Times bestseller Knowledge and Power (Regnery, 2013), presented a new theory of economics, based on the breakthroughs from information theory that enabled the computer revolution and the rise of the Internet. In a review, Steve Forbes stated that the book “will profoundly and positively reshape economics… [and] will rank as one of the most influential works of our era.” The book won the Leonard E. Read prize at FreedomFest in Las Vegas in 2013.
Mr. Gilder is a contributing editor of Forbes magazine and a frequent writer for the Economist, the American Spectator, the Harvard Business Review, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications. He lives in Tyringham, Massachusetts, in the Berkshire Mountains, where he is an active churchman, sometime runner, and with his wife Nini, parent of four children.
