In 1996 and 2000, Mr. Forbes ran as a Republican candidate for president on a platform that advocated a flat income tax.
He is currently on the boards of The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation, the Heritage Foundation and The Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, and is the author of two books on political and economic policy issues.
