Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At any rate, this is a different vita from Geißler's:

Paul Craig Roberts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

He was Distinguished Fellow at the Cato Institute from 1993 to 1996. He was a former Senior Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution. ...During 1981-82 he served as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy. President Reagan and Treasury Secretary Regan credited him with a major role in the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981, ...he drafted the Kemp-Roth bill [a tax cut] and played a leading role in developing bipartisan support for a supply-side economic policy.

In 1987 the French government recognized him as "the artisan of a renewal in economic science and policy after half a century of state interventionism" and inducted him into the Legion of Honor on March 20, 1987.

..."In their hatred of "the rich," the left-wing overlooks that in the 20th century the rich were the class most persecuted by government. The class genocide [in communist societies] of the 20th century is the greatest genocide in history." [7]

Though here he attacks opponents as "libertarians" in third person, many consider Roberts a libertarian himself. Roberts' opposition to the ruling order is Iraq first, economy second. Geißler's is economy first, religion second.
