Nelson Nash Wins It!

Nelson Nash, developer of the Infinite Banking Concept and long-time friend of FEE, receives the 2018 Blinking Lights Award.

With great pleasure at the closing banquet of FEEcon on June 9th, FEE bestowed its 2018 Blinking Lights Award upon a dear friend and one of our most longstanding and faithful supporters, Nelson Nash of Birmingham, Alabama.

Nelson is the developer of the Infinite Banking Concept, explained here by economist Robert Murphy. For decades, Nelson has been an activist and spokesperson for liberty, free markets, sound money, and the Austrian school of economics. He came to know our founder, Leonard Read, when he attended a FEE seminar more than half a century ago. His beautiful wife Mary has been at his side, supporting his championship of all the right ideas for over 65 years, and was present on stage as Nelson received the award. A native of Georgia, Nelson has extensive experience in both forestry and life insurance and earned Master Aviator Wings during his 30 years of service in the Army National Guard.
