Martin Anderson (August 5, 1936–January 3, 2015) was an American academic, economist, author, policy analyst, and adviser
to U.S. politicians and presidents, including Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon. Under the Nixon administration, Anderson was
credited with helping to end the military draft and bringing into existence the all-volunteer armed forces. Under Reagan,
Anderson helped draft the administration's original economic program that became known as "Reaganomics." A political conservative
and a strong proponent of free-market capitalism, he was influenced by libertarianism and opposed government regulations that
limited individual freedom.
