Milton & Rose Friedman

“coverage of the world on behalf of liberty is truly remarkable. In seventy or more countries it is helping think tanks spread an understanding of free markets or engaged in creating think tanks that will do so. More power to it.”

— Milton Friedman, September 16, 2005

Since 1981, Atlas Economic Research Foundation has been the leading international organization for supporting independent think tanks advancing freedom.

Based in Arlington, Virginia, and founded by the late Sir Antony Fisher, Atlas believes the prospects for free societies all over the world depend upon intellectual entrepreneurs in civil society, who wish to improve public policy debates through sound research.
