Excerpt from The Jack News:
Day Nine of the Jack News Guide to the Libertarian Party Presidential Race in 2020.
Editor’s Note: The introduction to this series includes links to each of the nine profiles.
Peter Schiff is best known as a radio show host, focusing on economics, and as the multi-millionaire CEO of the investment firm EuroPacific Capital. If he were to seek the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination in 2020, his wealth would bring him considerable advantages in self-funding his campaign.
Schiff’s father, a famous tax resister, sought the party’s presidential nomination in 1996, before he was later convicted of tax evasion and spent his final years in prison.
The younger Schiff doesn’t emulate or advocate his father’s conspiratorial arguments against tax compliance. But he does embrace hardline “Austrian School” economics that is commonplace in the classical liberal movement.
