MADISON, Wis. — The multi-talented Ben Stein will bring his deadpan delivery to the opening speaker slot at the Credit Union Executives Society’s CEO Network 2008 event, scheduled for Nov. 2-5 at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas.

The entertainer and author will deliver his “Ben Stein on Life” routine, which will include his thoughts on the many challenges Americans are facing, and his belief that the country will not only work through all of its financial and economic problems but ultimately triumph over them.

Despite his well-known comedic appearances in movies, television and commercials, Stein is also a highly accomplished writer, lawyer and economist. He was a speech writer and lawyer for Presidents Nixon and Ford, a columnist and editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal, an economist for the U.S. Department of Commerce, a poverty lawyer and professor of law at the Pepperdine University School of Law. Stein currently writes a biweekly column for The New York Times and appears as a commentator on Fox News.
