Alleged role in Ron Paul newsletters

Tucker is a Southern Baptist convert[19] to Roman Catholicism[20] and is managing editor of Sacred Music.[21] He is one of the leading champions of traditional music, such as Gregorian Chant and sacred polyphony in the Catholic Church, and a high-profile member of the "Reform of the Reform" movement.[22] In 2010, Tucker spoke to the National Catholic Register about the importance of sacred music.[23]


He is now CEO of - a subscription-based "social network and online publishing platform for the liberty minded".[1]

Tucker was editor of from 1997 until late 2011 when he was hired by Addison Wiggin as executive editor of Laissez Faire Books.[2]

As a writer, Tucker has contributed scholarly efforts and humorous essays to, the Ludwig von Mises Institute, and elsewhere. Examples of the latter essays include his defense of morning drinking,[9] his advice on "How to Dress Like a Man",[10] his attack on shaving cream,[11] and his admiration for the speedy-service haircut.[12] He is a critic[13] of the Grameen Bank which, along with its founder Muhammad Yunus, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006.[14] Describing himself as a "dedicated anarchist",[15] Tucker has authored numerous articles (many of which published on the aforementioned websites) and three books on topics such as libertarian anarchism, capitalism, Austrian economics, and alternative currencies, especially Bitcoin and its competing variants.[16][17][18]

Tucker compiled an annotated bibliography of the works of Henry Hazlitt, entitled Henry Hazlitt: Giant For Liberty, which is now in print. A Foundation for Economic Education review described the book, which "includes citations of a novel, works on literary criticism, treatises on economics and moral philosophy, several edited volumes, some 16 other books and many chapters in books, plus articles, commentaries, and reviews," as "an apt eulogy of Henry Hazlitt."[8]
