American Enterprise Institute
Founded in 1938, the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research sponsors original research on U.S and world economic and financial issues, U.S. foreign policy and international security, and domestic political and social issues. AEI is dedicated to preserving and strengthening the foundations of a free society—limited government, competitive private enterprise, vital cultural and political institutions, and vigilant defense—through rigorous inquiry, debate, and writing. The Institute is home to some of America’s most renowned economists, legal scholars, political and social scientists, and foreign policy specialists. AEI is an independent, nonpartisan organization financed by tax-deductible contributions from individuals, foundations, and corporations.
