Bryan Caplan
I'm Bryan Caplan, Professor of Economics at George Mason University and New York Times Bestselling author.

I've written The Myth of the Rational Voter, named "the best political book of the year" by the New York Times, Selfish Reasons to Have More Kids, The Case Against Education, Open Borders (co-authored with SMBC's Zach Weinersmith), Labor Econ Versus the World, How Evil Are Politicians?, Don't Be a Feminist, Voters As Mad Scientists, and You Will Not Stampede Me. My next book, Build, Baby, Build: The Science and Ethics of Housing, will be published by the Cato Institute in April 2024.

I am the editor and chief writer for Bet On It, the blog hosted by the Salem Center for Policy at the University of Texas. I've published in the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, TIME, Newsweek, Atlantic, American Economic Review, Economic Journal, Journal of Law and Economics, and Intelligence, blogged for EconLog from 2005-2022, and appeared on ABC, BBC, Fox News, MSNBC, and C-SPAN. An openly nerdy man who loves role-playing games and graphic novels, I live in Oakton, Virginia, with my wife and four kids.
