ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Randal O'Toole is a Cato Institute Senior Fellow working on urban growth, public land, and transportation issues. His research on national forest management, culminating in his 1988 book, Reforming the Forest Service, has had a major influence on Forest Service policy and on-the-ground management. His analysis of urban land-use and transportation issues, brought together in his 2001 book, The Vanishing Automobile and Other Urban Myths, has influenced decisions in cities across the country. In his book The Best-Laid Plans, O'Toole calls for repealing federal, state, and local planning laws, and proposes reforms that can help solve social and environmental problems without heavy-handed government regulation. O'Toole's latest book is American Nightmare: How Government Undermines The Dream of Homeownership. He is the author of numerous Cato papers. He has also written for Regulation magazine, as well as op-eds and articles for numerous other national journals and newspapers. O'Toole travels extensively and has spoken about free-market environmental issues in dozens of cities. An Oregon native, O'Toole was educated in forestry at Oregon State University and in economics at the University of Oregon.
