Center for Economic Prosperity

Across the U.S., free-enterprise believers and entrepreneurs face substantial and, at times, overwhelming barriers to bringing new, exciting and potentially superior products and services to market. These barriers are unnatural and artificial – they seek only to protect entrenched interests at the expense of market-based competition.

The Center publishes scholarly work, holds educational campaigns and events, builds coalitions and promotes policy reform in the areas of:
