Investment advisor and author

Richard J. Maybury (born 10 October 1946) is the publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report for Investors. He has written several entry level books on United States economics, law and history from a libertarian perspective. He has written these things in epistolatory form, usually as an uncle writing to his nephew, answering questions. Maybury was a high school economics teacher. After failing to find a book which would give a clear explanation on his view of economics he wrote one himself. Some of his books include Uncle Eric Talks About Personal, Career & Financial Security—a book that is basically the foundation for his other books about the model perspective and Higher Law, Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?—a book that explains the history of the United States economic model and how it was based on free-market Austrian economics and Whatever Happened to Justice?—a book about his juris naturalist philosophical viewpoints regarding the foundations of America's legal system, British Common Law, the law of the Franks and early Christian Ireland.

Advocates for Self-Government - Libertarian Education: Richard Maybury - Libertarian, by Bill Winter
Includes picture, biographical profile and quote
"Have a question about economics? Ask Uncle Eric. That's the moniker Richard Maybury has adopted to explain free-market economics, history, and law to young readers. Maybury has written 11 books in the Uncle Eric series ... Written in the form of letters from an economist to a 14-year-old niece or nephew, the books promote Maybury's Two Rules: 'Do all you have agreed to do. Do not encroach on other persons or their property.' ... Maybury is also the publisher of U.S. & World Early Warning Report For Investors (EWR) newsletter. The newsletter has a unique investment focus: government."

Writings

The Great Thanksgiving Hoax, The Free Market, Nov 1985
Describes what really happened to the Mayflower pilgrims (and also at Jamestown) by relying on governor William Bradford's History of Plymouth Plantation
"Each year at this time, schoolchildren all over America are taught the official Thanksgiving story, and newspapers, radio, TV, and magazines devote vast amounts of time and space to it. It is all very colorful and fascinating. It is also very deceiving. This official story is nothing like what really happened. It is a fairy tale, a whitewashed and sanitized collection of half-truths ... Thus, the real meaning of Thanksgiving, deleted from the official story, is: Socialism does not work; the one and only source of abundance is free markets, and we thank God we live in a country where we can have them."

Interviews

Interview: Richard Maybury, by Richard J. Maybury, Jim Elwood, Freedom Network News, 2003
Topics discussed include: how Maybury became a libertarian, his "Uncle Eric" books and homeschooling, the "packaging" needed to sell liberty and his Early Warning Report investment newsletter
"ISIL: I can remember seeing your writings in publications of the original Society for Individual Liberty (SIL). How did you become a libertarian and how did you get started in the movement?
Maybury: During the 1960s, I was an air crew member in the 605th Air Commando Squadron ... One day shortly before my discharge, I was talking with a friend about how we had been lied to, and how shocking it had been for me to learn that our beloved federal government had the ethics of Attila the Hun. ... On a slip of paper, my friend wrote Atlas Shrugged. ... A few years later, when I was in college, I found it, and read the book."
