Steve Soukup

 Senior Fellow

Steve Soukup is the Vice President and Publisher of The Political Forum, an “independent research provider” that delivers research and consulting services to the institutional investment community, with an emphasis on economic, social, political, and geopolitical events that are likely to have an impact on the financial markets in the United States and abroad.

He is also the CEO and Director of The Political Forum Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting community among the investment community and all those interested in the intersection of politics and markets, as well as the preservation of free and fair capital markets.

Since June 2023, Steve has been a senior fellow at Consumers Research, “America’s Oldest Consumer Protection Agency,” which has taken up the challenge of defending markets, investors, and consumers from top-down and government efforts to manipulate financial services to achieve political ends.

Steve is the author of The Dictatorship of Woke Capital, published by Encounter Books in February 2021 and named one of The Wall Street Journal’s Top 5 books about politics for that year.  The Journal called it, “an exceptionally useful presentation of the intellectual origins and present-day lunacies of woke capitalism.”

Steve’s work has appeared in National Review Online, The New York Post, The Spectator, The Hill, The Federalist, RealClearPolitics, and Newsweek, among others.
