Tim Worstall (born 27 March 1963, Torquay) is a British-born writer and blogger, who writes about many topics, but particularly about economics. He works as a consultant and dealer in scandium and other exotic metals. He is a Senior Fellow of the Adam Smith Institute.
Worstall is a regular contributor to Forbes and the Register. He has also written for the Guardian, the New York Times, PandoDaily, the Daily Telegraph blogs, the Times, and The Wall Street Journal. In 2010 his blog was listed as one of the top 100 UK political blogs by Total Politics.
Worstall's writings on economics and environmentalism have received a varied response. Matt Ridley described his book Chasing Rainbows as "Fearless, fresh, forensic and funny", while in response to an article by Worstall about the think thank Compass the author Colin Hines described Worstall's argument as "a libellous smokescreen". Worstall has also written on corporate tax and has been critical of the protest group UK Uncut. In response Richard Murphy wrote that "the claims made by Worstall are not just groundless, they reveal either a profound misunderstanding of the issues or a deliberate willingness to misrepresent them".
