Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D.
For over 20 years, Dr. Corsi has been a licensed National Association of Security Dealers registered representative, currently holding FINRA-registered licenses as a Registered Principal, Financial Principal, Options Principal, and Municipals Principal. Dr. Corsi also currently holds active Life & Health insurance licenses, as well as Property & Casualty insurance licenses in New Jersey.
Since 2004, Dr. Corsi has published over 25 books, seven of which were New York Times Bestsellers, including two #1 New York Times best-sellers.
In previous careers, for over 25 years, Dr. Corsi worked in banking and finance, establishing investment programs for banks in the United States and worldwide to create financial planning services for their retail customers. From 1968-1981, he worked at universities where he conducted research on federally funded grants.
In 1981, as part of his academic career, Dr. Corsi published “Terrorism as a Desperate Game: Fear, Bargaining, and Communication in the Terrorist Event” in Journal of Conflict Resolution, a mathematical game-theoretical model for predicting the outcome of terrorist events. This resulted in a top-secret clearance by the State Department’s Agency for International Development, where he joined a team of psychiatrists and psychologists to develop a hostage-survival training program for State Department officials stationed overseas.
From 1977 to 1981, Dr. Corsi created and directed the “Fair Hearing Project” at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, and Denver University in Denver, Colorado. The Fair Hearing Project involved a randomized field experiment designed to test the due process acceptability under the standard of Goldberg v. Kelly, 397 U.S. 254 (1970) of telephone hearings versus in-person hearings in unemployment insurance and welfare cases. The project was funded by the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and the U.S. Immigration and Nationalization Services. The Fair Hearing Process led to widespread adoption of telecommunications in various legal processes previously dominated by in-person requirements.
Dr. Corsi graduated magna cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science and Economics from Case Western Reserve University in 1968 and received a Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University in 1972. He resides in New Jersey with his family. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on a First Amendment topic under the direction of Arthur Sutherland Jr. in the Harvard Law School and Michael Walzer in the Department of Government. Dr. Corsi’s dissertation was entitled: Prior Restraint and Prior Punishment: A Moral and Legal Evaluation.
He has been for years a frequent quest on radio, with multiple television appearances on Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, and MSNBC, as well as network television. He has done hundreds of radio interviews in the United States as well as worldwide.
For 12 years, from 2004 to 2016, Dr. Corsi worked as a Senior Staff Reporter for WND.com where on a daily basis he worked as an investigative reporter on economics and other areas.
