Richard Cornuelle


American political activist, charity worker, author, and one of the first modern American libertarians.

At New York University he studied with Ludwig von Mises, the émigré Austrian economist. Mises’s students would soon create the modern libertarian movement. Cornuelle was also a member of the intimate circle around the émigré Russian novelist Ayn Rand.

In 1965, Cornuelle’s first book, Reclaiming the American Dream, argued that associations of volunteers could effectively solve social problems without recourse to heavy-handed bureaucracy. Pollster George Gallup later said that this book sparked “the most dramatic shift in American thinking since the New Deal”. Cornuelle refined his ideas in two later books, De-Managing America (1976) and Healing America (1983).

Cornuelle died in New York City on 26 April 2011, aged 84.
