Biography

Ben Stein has had what may be the most diverse career of anyone now on the national scene. He is in every sense a Renaissance man. Ben Stein is an award-winning actor, economist, writer, journalist and teacher and is equally well known in America's boardrooms and in America's dormitories and fraternity houses. He is a profoundly unique individual who has had the good fortune to have "been there and done that" in a myriad of professions that many of us only dream about, see on television, or read about in the news. Ben Stein writes speeches from scratch (as he did for two U.S. Presidents) to fit any program perfectly. With expertise in everything from law to laughs, Ben Stein's presentations leave audiences with useful insight, (if they want it!) or simply great memories of a fun time had by all.

Ben Stein was born in Washington D.C., the son of noted economist and writer Herbert Stein. Ben Stein attended Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland, where he studied alongside future luminaries such as Sly Stallone, Carl Bernstein, Goldie Hawn and Connie Chung. He graduated from Columbia University in 1966 with honors in economics, and from Yale Law School in 1970 as valedictorian of his class. While at Yale, Ben Stein worked part-time as a poverty lawyer, an activist, and also demonstrated for civil rights.

Ben Stein worked as a trial lawyer at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, D.C., a university adjunct at American University in Washington, D.C. and also at U.C. Santa Cruz. Ben Stein taught libel and securities law at Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA. He was a speechwriter and lawyer for Presidents Nixon and Gerald Ford, and did legal work for Mr. Nixon during the days of Watergate. He is not, repeat not, Deep Throat.

Ben Stein was a columnist and wrote editorials for the Wall Street Journal. In 1976, Ben moved to Hollywood and became a novelist, TV sitcom writer and movie scriptwriter. He is the author of numerous books; the New York Times called his diary of his first year in Hollywood, DREEMZ, "stunning." His novel Ludes, about a drug and money addict in Los Angeles was made into the movie, The Boost, starring James Woods and Sean Young. Ben Stein labored on a decade-long project of exposing financial fraud and self-dealing at large companies. His work on the Milken/Drexel junk bond scheme was instrumental in the recovery of billions for investors and taxpayers. Ben Stein's latest two books, Yes, You Can Become a Successful Income Investor! Reaching for Yield in Today's Market, and The Gift Of Peace: Guideposts On The Road To Serenity were published in March of 2005.

In 1986, with no professional training, Ben Stein became an instant cult hero for his role as the boring economics teacher in the movie, Ferris Bueller's Day Off. His scene was voted "one of fifty funniest scenes in American film history." After that, Ben Stein went on to be a recurring character in Charles in Charge and then The Wonder Years. In 1997 he began his long-running hit quiz show, Win Ben Stein's Money. This show won seven Emmys and Ben Stein won an Emmy for best game show host. His show has been nominated for 17 Emmys. He appears regularly on the Fox News Channel talking about finance. Ben is currently a celebrity judge on the CBS hit, Star Search.
