Mises Institute Ranked 9th Most Influential US Think Tank

TheBestSchools.org, a leading online resource for campus and online education, has named the Mises Institute the 9th Most Influential Think Tank in the United States.

The article goes on to note:

Named for the famous Austrian School economist, the Institute’s stated mission is to promote “the Misesian tradition of thought through the defense of the market economy, private property, sound money, and peaceful international relations, while opposing government intervention.” As such it has become, perhaps more than any other institution on this list, the darling of myriad Young Conservative groups.

We want to thank all of our incredible donors who make the work we do possible.

A note from Lew Rockwell, founder and chairman of the Mises Institute:

Although the Mises Institute is not, strictly speaking, a think-tankscheming plans to be imposed by the state on society—I very much appreciate this ranking. In the 50 most influential think-tanks in America, we rate #9. I will note that the other organizations have bigger—often vastly bigger—budgets than the Mises Institute. But being smaller, quicker, and anti-bureaucratic pays.

It doesn’t hurt to have the examples of Mises and Rothbard always before us, and the help of our wonderful donors, board, faculty, and staff. Oh, and one other point: no organization in America gets more out of a buck.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
