Why Niall Ferguson Called on Conservative Students in a Free Speech Fight

My Uncle Ian enjoyed asking his younger brother when that wastrel Niall would leave college and get a real job. The implication was that, by becoming an academic, I had essentially failed to grow up. I sometimes think Uncle Ian was right.

One of the attractions of university life to me was precisely that academic jobs were not like real jobs. At Oxford, my tutors inhabited large studies with towering bookcases. They wore not suits but well-worn tweed jackets. During the vacations, they were free to do as they pleased, so long as they occasionally published books. I resolved to join these happy eggheads.

In those distant days of the 1980s, academic historians came in different flavors. There were fierce Marxists. There were brilliant liberals. There were acerbic Tories. On the whole, I found the Tory dons more fun. We Oxford Thatcherites were a minority, but we had our mentors, and they egged us on.

Fast forward more than 30 years and I find myself at Stanford. My don’s life has been not exactly as I had imagined it then, but near enough. Books? Fifteen at the last count. Scruffy jackets? A wardrobe full.

But there is one huge difference that has crept up on me almost imperceptibly. Today, unlike in the 1980s, there are scarcely any conservatives to be found among academic historians.

Country of refuge.

Country of a promise.

A superfluous country for superfluous people.

Matt Schlapp: WHCA dinner will turn Americans tired of the hate to Trump's side

Posted by WWSG Staff on May 17, 2018 10:45:00 AM

Capital BuildingThe White House Correspondents’ Association dinner has come and gone and for that we are all very thankful. But the political overhang of the dinner is adding momentum to President Trump’s favorite theme, that the D.C. swamp can only be reformed if additional conservative voices are elected in November. A dinner is just an evening, but this dinner could actually help cement even more independent-minded Americans to the Trump cause.

To remind you, a so-called comic and her profanity-laced, vulgar monologue was the main “entertainment” at the dinner.

Jokes about abortion were just the appetizer for jokes about apparent physical harm to Kellyanne Conway and of course the public bullying of Sarah Huckabee Sanders. All of this was simply not funny, and for my wife Mercedes and me it warranted an early exit and an immediate GPS search for the closest bar.

How Much Does A Keynote Speaker Cost?

Posted by WWSG Staff on Apr 27, 2018 5:00:00 PM

Dollar bills

Some may think that finding the cost for a keynote speaker is as simple as a Google search. After all, Google holds the answers for almost anything. Unfortunately, many factors play into how much a client spends on a keynote speaker, which is why many speaker bureaus do not automatically list a speaker’s fee, also known as their honorarium. Instead, their website will read: “contact us for fee” in order to share the number.

When searching for the estimated cost for a keynote speaker, most search results will lead in the direction of a speaker or lecture agency. Some may see this as secrecy, but it is because fees can vary depending on many factors.

Depending on location, duration of the keynote and audience size, a speaker may adjust his or her honorarium. Due to this, many speakers and clients use lecture agencies as their resource to negotiate and contact more notoriously private speakers. Lecture agencies specialize in finding and contacting highly sought-after keynote speakers.

Despite the variation in costs from speaker to speaker, there are some trends that help estimating the price for certain keynote speakers.
