Morgan O. Reynolds is the former director of the Criminal Justice Center at the National Center for Policy Analysis headquartered in Dallas, Tex..

He served as chief economist for the United States Department of Labor during 2001–2002, George W. Bush's first term.[1] In 2005, he gained public attention as the first prominent government official to publicly claim that 9/11 was an inside job, and is a member of Scholars for 9/11 Truth. Some 9/11 conspiracy theorists have expressed concern over Reynolds' theory that commercial jets were not involved in the WTC attacks. Reynolds responded to his critics [3] at his website.

Reynolds is the author of Power and Privilege: Labor Unions in America (New York: Universe Books, 1984 e-book), a critique of labor unions in the United States. In the book, Reynolds blames labor unions for exacerbating unemployment and inflation.

Reynolds is also the author of the book Making America Poorer: The Cost of Labor Law (Washington, DC: Cato Institute, 1987), a book which advocates greatly reducing the level of labor regulation. In the book, Reynolds argues that labor unions have special legal privileges and immunities that ought to be revoked, and that labor unions have generally had a negative economic impact on the United States. Reynolds also offers evidence to support the claim that minimum wage laws exacerbate unemployment.

For W.H. Hutt: An Economist For the Long Run (Chicago: Regnery Books, 1986), a festschrift in honor of W.H. Hutt, Reynolds contributed an essay and served as editor.

In March 2007, Reynolds filed a Request For Correction (RFC) with NIST citing his belief that real commercial jets (Boeings) did not hit the WTC towers and making claims of faulty physics in NIST's computer animations of planes impacting the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11. Reynolds stated, "There were no planes, there were no hijackers. I know, I know, I'm out of the mainstream, but that's the way it is." Reynolds is one of three filers of RFCs to NIST who filed together, including Dr. Judy Wood. All three are represented by attorney Jerry Leaphart. NIST responded to the claims and rejected them.[2][3] Another group also filed a Request For Correction with NIST and cited the Reynolds RFC as "a nonsense submission," which was "likely to undermine the legitimate work of others" and to "inoculate people against any other legitimate challenges to the NIST Report."[4]

On his website, Reynolds argues that the mainstream versions of the JFK assassination, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 9/11 attacks are all lies. He states "The network concealed in deep politics has grown more audacious since the Kennedy triumph … escalating to mass murders like the Oklahoma City bombing and the World Trade Center."[5]
