This is Fergus Hodgson, host of The Stateless Man with the Overseas Radio Network and The Liberty Express, and I’m excited about sharing liberty-oriented opportunities with an international audience. Having lived abroad for many years now, I also hope my experiences can help others take the plunge in a well-informed manner.
While originally from rural New Zealand, I received an athletic scholarship to study at Boston University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Economics. I then returned to New Zealand to pursue an athletic career and complete a second major in political science — alongside which I taught macroeconomics with the University of Waikato.
I now base myself in North America, and I’m a policy advisor with the Future of Freedom Foundation. Previously, I was director of fiscal policy studies with the John Locke Foundation, a visiting scholar with the American Institute for Economic Research, a research associate with the Frontier Centre for Public Policy, Canada, and a reporter and editor with the Pelican Institute.
My commentaries and news articles have appeared in newspapers and magazines in the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, including the Washington Times, Charlotte Observer, Sacramento Bee, Providence Journal, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Times Colonist, and Waikato Times. I’ve also contributed to online outlets such as the Daily Caller, The American Conservative, World Net Daily, Fox News Latino, and LewRockwell.com.
Given a particular interest in migration and foreign affairs — and having traveled throughout South America in 2010, 2011, and 2012 — I’ve written columns for a Spanish-language newspaper, La Conexión. I’m also a frequent guest on the Russia Today television network.
While I encourage listeners to follow The Stateless Man twitter account, I have another one that includes my broader interests, particularly my policy research (@FergHodgson). Both of them include updates in Spanish, from time to time.
