Center for Public Choice and Market Process

The Center for Public Choice & Market Process is funded by BB&T and the Koch Foundation and is designed to examine and stimulate discussion of the following topics:

  • The role of government institutions in a capitalist society
  • The relationship between government and the individual
  • The relationship between political and economic freedom
  • The moral structure of a free market economy

The success of the Center for Public Choice & Market Process depends on the support of foundations and private individuals who share its commitment to advancing the understanding and appreciation of the system of free minds and free markets.

We are deeply grateful to all who support our venture.
