Dr. Murray Sabrin

Murray Sabrin arrived in America from West Germany at the age of two with his parents and older brother on August 6, 1949. His parents were the only members of their respective families to survive the Holocaust in Poland.  The Sabrin family moved from the Lower East Side of Manhattan to the Bronx in 1953, where Murray attended public schools. In 1968 he married Florence, and in 1977 they moved to New Jersey, where they have lived until 2021 when they retired to Florida.

Sabrin became a U.S. citizen in 1959 at age 12 and graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1964. He has a B.A. in history, geography and social studies education from Hunter College, an M.A. in social studies education from Lehman College and a Ph.D. in economic geography from Rutgers University. Sabrin is only two individuals who had the honor of having the late Austrian School economist, historian, and philosopher Murray N. Rothbard serve as a member of his dissertation committee.  His dissertation, “The Spatial Incidence of Inflation in the United States 1967-1971:  An Economic-Geographic Perspective,” was reviewed by a University of Chicago professor who stated, “You are to be congratulated on the theoretical and critical depth of your thesis.”

After working as a staff economist, investment analyst, and real estate sales associate, Dr. Sabrin joined the faculty of the Anisfield school of Business of Ramapo College of New Jersey in 1985 and retired on July 1, 2020 as Professor of Finance.  Over his career he taught several courses including Corporate Finance, Securities & Investments and Financial History of the United States.  On January 25th 2021, the Board of Trustees awarded Dr. Sabrin Emeritus status for his scholarship and professional contributions during his 35 year career.

In 2007 Murray and his wife made a gift to Ramapo College to establish the Sabrin Center for Free Enterprise in the Anisfield School of Business (, and made a contribution in 2021 to establish the Sabrin Center resource room in the new Peter F. Mercer Learning Commons.

Dr. Sabrin is considered a “public intellectual” for writing essays about the economy for The Record, Star Ledger, Trenton Times, and the Asbury Park Press. His essays have also appeared in Commerce Magazine, Mid-Atlantic Journal of Business, and Privatization Review among other scholarly and popular publications.

In his book, Universal Medical Care: From Conception to End-of-Life: The Case for a Single Payer System, Sabrin’s vision for medical care is the individual or family being the single payer to restore the doctor-patient relationship.  Sabrin is the author of Tax Free 2000:  The Rebirth of American Liberty, a blueprint on how to create a tax-free America in the 21st century, and Why the Federal Reserve Sucks:  It Causes, Inflation, Recessions, Bubbles and Enriches the One Percent, which is available on Amazon.

Sabrin’s most recent books are Navigating the Boom-Bust Cycle and The Finance of Healthcare, both published by Business Experts Press.  His memoir, From Immigrant to Public Intellectual: An American Story, was published late 2022.  His books are profiled at the CONK bookstore,
