George Gerald Reisman (born January 13 1937)"George Gerald Reisman" (2002). "Contemporary Authors Online". Gale. Retrieved on January 18, 2007.] is Professor Emeritus of Economics at Pepperdine University and author of "" (1996). [Ottawa, IL: Jameson Books. ISBN 0-915463-73-3.] He is also the author of an earlier book, "The Government Against the Economy" (1979), contents of which are mostly subsumed in "Capitalism". Reisman was born in New York City and earned his Ph.D. from New York University under the direction of Ludwig von Mises. He is an outspoken advocate of free market or "laissez-faire" capitalism.

In "Capitalism", Reisman seeks to achieve a synthesis of the British Classical and Austrian Schools of Economics, uniting the doctrines of Adam Smith, David Ricardo, James Mill, and John Stuart Mill with those of Carl Menger, Eugen von Böhm-Bawerk, and Ludwig von Mises.

Reisman was an acquaintance of Ayn Rand, whose influence on his thought and work is at least as great as that of his mentor Mises. He identifies himself as an Objectivist, though he is no longer affiliated with the Ayn Rand Institute due to a falling out with some of its senior members, particularly Harry Binswanger and Peter Schwartz.
