Intellectually fearless and a perennial visionary and historian, Newt Gingrich is the foremost economic, social, environmental and political thinker in America today. He is well-known as the architect of the "Contract with America" that led the Republican Party to victory in 1994 by capturing the majority in the U.S. House for the first time in forty years. After he was elected Speaker, he disrupted the status quo by moving power out of Washington and back to the American people. Under his leadership, Congress passed welfare reform, passed the first balanced budget in a generation, and passed the first tax cut in sixteen years. In addition, the Congress restored funding to strengthen our defense and intelligence capabilities, an action later lauded by the bipartisan 9/11 Commission.
But there is a lot more to Newt Gingrich than these remarkable achievements. As an author, Speaker Gingrich has published twenty-three books including 13 fiction and non-fiction New York Times best-sellers. Newt has also become one of the most highly sought-after public speakers, accepting invitations to speak before many of the most prestigious organizations in the world. Because of his own unquenchable thirst for knowledge, Speaker Gingrich is able to share unique and unparalleled insights on a wide range of topics. His audiences find him to be not only an educational but also an inspirational speaker.
