Recently, it was brought to my attention that the World Economic Forum’s website included a profile of me. As such, many people have asked me if I am affiliated with the WEF. Here is my response:

I am NOT a member of the WEF. I have never attended a meeting, conference, or any event sponsored or associated with the WEF. I have never been to Davos. I do not know why my profile was included on their Young Global Leaders website. Once it was brought to my attention, I demanded that the WEF remove me from their site. They have since complied.

I do not support the WEF’s stated goal of a “great reset.” I am a proud supporter of free market capitalism and small governments.

The best way to fight poverty and improve the quality of life for all, is through less government interference in our lives and greater economic freedom. The market economy has done more to make life better than any government program.

I hope this clears up the misconception about my connection with the WEF.
