This is the fan page of Bob McTeer. We have created this site to give tribute to a man who shared his knowledge with the rest of the world even though at times it seems like the world was not on his side. We believe it takes courage to speak up regarding pertinent national and social issues and Bob McTeer is a courageous man who shared his thoughts and insights about what is really going on in our society. He delved into history, economy, health care, education, energy, finance, taxes, policies, and politics. And what is most important is that he tackled these issues using lay man’s terms thereby making it easier for ordinary people to understand these issues. It is important to talk about these issues to open the eyes of the public about their relevance in their everyday lives.
Who is Bob McTeer? He is a distinguished fellow of the National Center for Policy Analysis, a former chancellor of the Texas A & M University System, and former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. His passion for policy analysis pushed him to speak out regarding his views on the way things are and what reforms are needed to improve current policies.
This fan page of Bob McTeer features his analyses about relevant social issues.
