    Biographical/Historical Note

    Founded in Chicago in 1984, the Heartland Institute is a national "nonprofit research organization dedicated to finding and promoting ideas that empower people, with a mission to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems." Heartland sends monthly public policy newspapers addressing the major domestic public policy issues to every national and state elected official in the U.S. plus 8,400 county and local officials and thousands of civic and business leaders. It also produces books, policy studies, and booklets. Approximately 235 academics and professional economists participate in its peer-review process, and more than 160 elected officials serve on its Legislative Forum.
