About National Review

National Review was founded in 1955 by William F. Buckley Jr. as a magazine of conservative opinion. The magazine has since defined the modern conservative movement and enjoys the broadest allegiance among American conservatives.

Today, National Review publishes a magazine 24 times a year in several formats, including print and digital. In the spirit of our mission and serious undertaking, National Review employs the brightest and best minds in conservative letters. National Review also produces a 24/7 website,, which publishes conservative commentary on major political and cultural issues, both domestic and global, on a daily basis. This commentary may come in the form of articles or blog posts. National Review also publishes multiple slideshows, podcasts, and videos on its website every day.

On August 1, 2015, the magazine and website — corporately National Review, Inc. — became a wholly owned subsidiary of National Review Institute (NRI), which was founded by William F. Buckley Jr. as a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 1991. Since the reorganization, National Review has remained America’s most influential magazine for conservative news, commentary, and opinion, while National Review Institute has provided high-quality conservative programming that complements and expands upon the critical legacy and mission entrusted to both organizations by Buckley. (For more information on National Review Institute, go here.)

In July 2020, National Review announced the formation of NR Capital Matters, a new section on, which features articles on business, finance, and economics. In the same spirit that led William F. Buckley Jr. to found National Review, National Review Institute proudly sponsors this new project to explain, defend, and celebrate capitalism. Through timely commentary from well-known financiers, economists, entrepreneurs, business people, and other specialists, coupled with events, webinars, forums, and conference calls, the objective of this initiative is to change the terms of debate over our country’s economic future for the better.
