He teaches courses related to business and public policy. Wheelan is the author of the “naked books”: Naked Money, Naked Statistics, and Naked Economics. In 2023, Naked Economics was named by Princeton finance professor Burton Malkiel in the Wall Street Journal as the best business book of all time. Wheelan is also the author of The Centrist Manifesto and the founder and chair of Unite America, a movement of Democrats, Republicans, and independents working to foster a more representative and functional government.
