Center for Economic Policy and Tax Reform

      A central theme of the 20th century was the failure of collectivism and the triumph of free markets. Nevertheless, government in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States continues to grow bigger, more intrusive, and more costly. A major portion of the Institute's research involves redefining the role, scope, and cost of government in a free society.
