About the Project
This site is a project of The Heartland Institute, a free market think tank based in Chicago, Illinois and founded in 1984. It is edited by Benjamin Domenech, research fellow for Heartland and managing editor of our health policy publication, Health Care News.
Heartland’s mission is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Such solutions include parental choice in education, choice and personal responsibility in health care, market-based approaches to environmental protection, privatization of public services, and deregulation in areas where property rights and markets do a better job than government bureaucracies.
The Heartland Institute is a national nonprofit research and education organization, tax exempt under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. It is not affiliated with any political party, business, or foundation.
