The Independent Institute
The Independent Institute is a non-politicized, scholarly public policy research and educational organization that sponsors in-depth studies of major economic and social issues. The Institute adheres to the highest standards of independent academic inquiry, regardless of prevailing political biases and conventions. The resulting studies are published and widely distributed as books and other publications, and are debated through numerous conference and media programs. Through this uncommon independence, depth and clarity, the Independent Institute pushes at the frontiers of our knowledge, redefines the debate over public issues, and fosters new and effective directions for government reform.
