Philip K. Howard is a well-known leader of government and legal reform in America. His latest book, The Rule of Nobody (W. W. Norton & Company, April 2014), was nominated for the Hayek Book Prize and was praised by Fareed Zakaria as “an utterly compelling and persuasive book that, if followed, could change the way America works.” His 2010 Ted Talk has been viewed by over 600,000 people.

Mr. Howard is also the author of the best-seller The Death of Common Sense (Random House, 1995), The Collapse of the Common Good (Ballantine Books, 2002), and Life Without Lawyers (W. W. Norton & Company, 2009). He writes periodically for the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, and other publications. He was a member of President Trump’s CEO council, advising on infrastructure, and regularly testifies before Congress.

In 2002, Mr. Howard formed Common Good, a nonpartisan national coalition dedicated to restoring common sense to America. His 2015 report “Two Years, Not Ten Years” delineated the economic and environmental costs of delayed infrastructure approvals, and has been endorsed by leaders of both major political parties.
