SPEARHEAD OF THE FREE MARKET ROAD SHOW
We are a politically independent research institute that draws on the legacy of the Austrian School of Economics to examine public policies and identify economic alternatives with a view to promoting a free, responsible and prosperous society.
We publish economic studies and commentary, as well as host conferences and events, including the Europe-wide Free Market Road Show, to discuss and promote free market alternatives to policymakers, businesspeople, academics, and students.
We offer opportunities for like-minded and engaged people and organizations to partner with us, write for us, work for us, or donate.
We deliver up-to-date analysis of the most pressing questions of our time.
In our fight to spread the ideas of individual liberty and personal responsibility it was the support of all our friends, all our partners, indeed, all of you out there that made it possible.
