Mission:

The Heartland Institute is a national nonprofit organization founded in 1984 and devoted to research and education. Its mission is to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems. Such solutions include parental choice in education, 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.

Programs:

The Heartland Institute publishes four national monthly newspapers covering free-market ideas in school reform, environmental protection, health care finance, and tax and budget matters. Heartland also publishes three policy newsletters, addressing the digital economy; lawsuit abuse; and public policy from a free-market multicultural perspective. It also publishes a members' newsletter. Heartland has a substantial presence on the Internet (http://www.heartland.org), including PolicyBot -- the Internet's largest collection of free-market public policy research. Eight Heartland Senior Fellows travel the country giving speeches to audiences of all sizes. Heartland also publishes occasional books and policy studies and hosts seminars and other events.

Rating: 5 stars  

They are expert, smart, tireless and indefatigable.

In the face of massive monied Leftist opposition - they remain strong...and always correct.

I've been a staff member of Heartland at two different periods, and continue to be involved with the organization. It's one of the most effective free market think tanks in the country, and continues to do vital work that helps to shape public policy in all fifty states and on the national level.

Heartland gets to meat of issues with genuine academic research and well-written policy guides. They afford advisors the freedom to pursue their own positions on issues, which further improves the veracity of their work.

In the face of vitriolic allegations and false accusations, Heartland's scholars and staff soldier on in an amazing battle to ensure fact-based policy proposals get a hearing. They stay above the fray and they are quick to lend their experts and expertise to policy organizations in need counsel and research. I am so grateful for their voice of reason in a cacophony of shrill emotionalism.

The Heartland Institute is one of the top free market thinks in the U.S. Heartland brings the key policy issues with market-based solutions to the public in a way that is easy for everyone to understand--the man on the street, legislators and staff, the media, and policy entrepreneurs can understand and use in their own research and communications.
