Member Spotlight
We support the Mises Institute for principled and pragmatic reasons. The ethical principles of the Institute align precisely with ours, namely that a stateless and free society unencumbered by external intrusions into human affairs can only lead to human flourishing. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the study of economics. Focusing on the stark contrast between a market economy versus a planned economy serves as the ideal framework for promoting these ideas. However, we also support the Institute for our own pragmatic reasons. We must keep this flame of liberty alive by ensuring those in the coming generations who are receptive to these ideas have a resource they can turn to. No organization has a better track record than the Institute in promoting these ideas among the young. One day they will occupy positions where they can serve to teach and influence others. In short, we support the Institute in the fervent hope of realizing a freer, more prosperous future for our children and grandchildren.
