Think tank

ASI is a free-market think tank that has played a role in the development of public policies, publishing over 300 policy reports and contributing to the worldwide movement towards free markets and free trade. The Institute encourages discussions of policy ideas through its website as well as newspapers, magazines, radio, and television. Its main focus is on introducing choice and competition, extending the influence of markets, giving ordinary people the chance to help frame their future through their choices, and redesigning public services in ways that inject innovation and consumer responsiveness into their delivery. ASI enjoys the support of individuals, foundations, and companies who understand its role in the policy-making process. Acting as a catalyst-drawing on its network of specialists from the worlds of business, academe, and public life-the Institute's aims are to anticipate future problems and create new policy strategies that are both politically and economically viable.
