Chuck Moulton is an Ph.D. student in economics at George Mason University (the most libertarian economics program in the world). Having finished all coursework, he is currently working on his dissertation on free banking (money without government).

He edits a blog on free banking authored by leading academics in the field. Chuck also holds a M.A. in economics, a J.D. in law, and a B.S. in mathematics.
Chuck is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California. In 2006 he was a law clerk for the Cato Institute, working with the Center for Constitutional Studies. In 2007 while attending Auburn University, Chuck lived a block away from the Mises Institute and frequently attended its seminars.
Chuck registered as a Libertarian the day he turned 18. He is a Life Member of the Libertarian Party and pledges $100/month to the national LP. He previously served as chair of the Virginia LP, chair of the Pennsylvania LP, an at-large member of the California LP Executive Committee, secretary of the Pennsylvania LP, and secretary of the LP of Northern Virginia.
Chuck was vice-chair of the Libertarian National Committee 2006-2008. He is a Professional Registered Parliamentarian with an in-depth knowledge of Robert's Rules of Order. Chuck chaired the 2/17/2008 LNC meeting, half the 7/3/2006 LNC meeting, and portions of the 2008 national convention (filling in for Bill Redpath). During the 2004-2006 term he served as a regional alternate. Chuck chaired the 2014 Bylaws and Rules Committee, having also served on the committee in 2010, 2012, and 2016. He was appointed to a special committee to reformat the LNC Policy manual during the 2008-2010 term.
Chuck ran for U.S. Congress as a Libertarian in 2004 (then 25 years old). He participated in 5 televised debates with his Republican and Democrat opponents, set up hundreds of yard signs, and spread the libertarian message in numerous newspaper, radio, and television interviews.
Chuck started the Libertarian Party Facebook page (over 500,000 likes), the LP LinkedIn page (over 2,900 members), and the Viginia LP Facebook page (over 9,000 likes). In Pennsylvania he sent out a candidate recruitment letter mail merged with local offices up for election by precinct; several Libertarians were elected to partisan office as a result. In Virginia he wrote a program to populate the database with election districts from U.S. Congress down to precinct (including school board, town council, etc.) for free and leveraged it to recruit the most active slate of general assembly candidates in a decade. Robert Sarvis has built on that success to lead an active federal slate in 2014. Chuck has been working with Arvin Vohra behind the scenes to build armies of specialized LP volunteers through Facebook groups, including attorneys, programmers, and more. He continually brainstorms new approaches and collaborates with colleagues to exectute that vision.
