ABOUT US

By acting as the premier agent for the exploration of market and enterprise systems, we are tackling today’s toughest challenges while mentoring the leaders of tomorrow.

Our current economic structures have failed to deliver on the promise of societal prosperity.  There is systematic poverty, long-term unemployment, and lost opportunities for individuals to thrive.  We believe everyone can prosper from economic growth. Because of the disconnect between what we see and what we believe is possible, we research and teach innovative market-based solutions to promote higher standards of living, full employment, and equal opportunities for everyone.  It is on all of us to find the solutions. Join us on the exploration.
