Institute of Economic Affairs

The Institute of Economic Affairs is a registered educational charity, and the UK’s original free market think tank.

Our objective is to improve the public’s understanding of the crucial role markets play in solving economic and social problems.

We believe in much smaller government and much greater economic freedom.

We spread that message to millions through our publications, films and events, through extensive outreach to students, academics and politicians and through countless media appearances – in print, on-air and online.
