Scott S. Powell

Scott Powell has been an entrepreneur for 30+ years, founding two companies. He has been a fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution and is currently senior fellow at Discovery Institute. Having been a frequent guest on national radio and TV, he has also published 250 articles in such publications as the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s Financial, New York Post, Philadelphia Inquirer, Washington Times, Chicago Tribune, Houston Chronicle, Dallas Morning News, San Francisco Chronicle, San Diego Union, Florida Sun Sentinel, USA Today and some two dozen other newspapers and journals in the U.S., Japan and Europe. He has been called on twice to provide expert witness testimony for the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Additionally and foundationally, his background has been shaped by the school of hard knocks. After working and saving, Scott took a leave of absence from undergraduate studies, sailing some 5,000 miles on a 17 ft. sloop-rig catboat and then back-packing through Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Over the course of several years he visited some 48 countries—chronicling and photographing life as he saw it, including poverty, oppression and dysfunction. After returning, working and saving he reentered school and graduated from the University of Chicago (B.A. and M.A.) and then received his Ph.D. from Boston University. This is his third book.
