Description
Correspondence, writings, memoranda, conference papers and other conference materials, fundraising and grant award records, other financial records, and printed matter relating to international promotion of free market economic policies.
Background
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 States.
