Mission:

“We believe in the free market of ideas, the free flow of capital, a limited and efficient government, the rule of law, and representative democracy. These are the ideas which, throughout history, have proven themselves to be most dynamic, liberating and exciting. Our researchers apply these ideas to the public policy questions which matter today. By the close study of Australian policy, we can recommend the best path for our politicians, policy makers and businesses to take.”
