Steve Forbes, president and chief executive officer of Forbes, will deliver a talk at The Anderson School at UCLA at part of its Distinguished Speaker Series. Mr. Forbes will share his views on business, the economy and financial markets in the face of current world events.

Mr. Forbes is also editor-in-chief of Forbes magazine, the company's flagship publication, which is one of the nation's leading business magazines, with a circulation of 900,000. Forbes and Forbes Global together reach a worldwide audience of nearly five million readers.

Mr. Forbes assumed his current positions in 1990. In addition to his leadership roles, he writes weekly columns under the heading of "Fact and Comment." A widely respected economic prognosticator, he has been honored with four Crystal Owl Awards for providing the most accurate economic forecasts.

Mr. Forbes twice took temporary leave from Forbes, first in 1995 and again in 1999, to campaign for the Republican nomination for the Presidency. Key to his political platform were a flat tax, medical savings accounts, a new Social Security system for working Americans, parental choice of schools for their children, term limits and a strong national defense. He continues to promote this agenda.

Mr. Forbes is also a final judge of the Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism, which are the most prestigious awards in business journalism. The Loeb Awards, which honor writers, editors and producers who make significant contributions to the understanding of business, finance and the economy, have been sponsored by The Anderson School at UCLA since 1973.
