As the Chairman and CEO of Forbes Media, Steve Forbes has directed what was a highly influential magazine into the 21st century by becoming a global multi-media enterprise.

In between authoring best-selling books and sitting on the boards of important institutions such as the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Heritage Foundation, and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation (with me), Steve also ran for President twice and has been a firm believer in a flat income tax plan.

Our recent discussion for the Pickens Podcast covers the candidates who are running for President (including the Donald Trump phenomenon), oil markets and capitalism, global politics, and the issues that will be at the forefront of the upcoming election.
