Sheldon Richman Joins FFF Full-Time


The Future of Freedom Foundation is pleased to announce that Sheldon Richman, who has served as a part-time senior fellow for FFF for many years, has joined the foundation as vice-president and editor of FFF’s monthly journal, Future of Freedom.

“We are really excited to have Sheldon join us as a full-time member of FFF’s staff,” said Jacob Hornberger, the foundation’s founder and president. “Sheldon is one of the most brilliant and talented writers, speakers, and editors in the libertarian movement. His joining us as a full-time staff member elevates FFF to a higher level.”

“I couldn’t be more honored,” Richman stated. “No organization has so steadfastly defended liberty than The Future of Freedom Foundation. I’m eager to get started.”

Among the things Richman will bring to FFF is his highly acclaimed TGIF (The Goal Is Freedom) Friday column.

A graduate of Temple University, Richman served for 15 years as the editor of The Freeman magazine, published by The Foundation for Economic Education. Prior to that, he served as senior editor at the Cato Institute and also worked at the Institute for Humane Studies. Prior to working in the libertarian movement, he was a journalist in Philadelphia.

His articles have long been the core of FFF’s op-ed program. His articles have appeared in the Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, American Scholar, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, Christian Science Monitor, and many others.

He is also the author of three of FFF’s most important and successful books: Separating School and State: How to Liberate America’s Families, Your Money or Your Life: Why We Must Abolish the Income Tax, and Tethered Citizens: Time to Repeal the Welfare State.
