The Atlas Network was founded in Fairfax, Virginia, as the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, in 1981. Its founder, Sir
Antony Fisher (1915-1988), had already created the Institute of Economic Affairs in his native Great Britain and the Fraser
Institute in Canada. The purpose of these organizations was promotion of free market economics, limited government, and deregulation
and privatization to the greatest extent possible. Other issues of interest to Atlas were school choice, climate change,
and the relation of religion to economics. The policies advocated by Atlas and its sister organizations were credited with
influence on the economic programs pursued by the governments of Margaret Thatcher in Britain and Ronald Reagan in the United
