Institute of Economic Affairs

The IEA is the UK’s original free-market think-tank, founded in 1955. Their mission is to improve understanding of the fundamental institutions of a free society by analyzing and expounding the role of markets in solving economic and social problems.

Given the current economic challenges facing Britain and the wider global environment, it is more vital than ever that we promote the intellectual case for a free economy, low taxes, freedom in education, health and welfare and lower levels of regulation. The IEA also challenges people to think about the correct role of institutions, property rights and the rule of law in creating a society that fosters innovation, entrepreneurship and the efficient use of environmental resources.

The analysis and communication of ideas form the core of their work. They produce reports, books and papers on all areas of economic policy, as well as a termly journal, Economic Affairs. Their policy experts frequently contribute to newspapers, broadcast media and websites to further the dissemination of free-market thinking.
