The Atlas Economic Research Foundation was founded in 1981 by the late Sir Antony Fisher. It is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, that brings freedom to the world by helping develop and strengthen a network of market-oriented think tanks that spans the globe.
The Atlas Vision
Achieving Atlas's vision of a 'peaceful and prosperous society of free and responsible individuals' requires respect for the foundations of a free society: individual liberty, property rights, limited government under the rule of law, and the market order. To move public policy debates toward these classical liberal ideas, Atlas discovers and assists those Intellectual Entrepreneurs who have the talent and willingness to create effective institutions and programs - programs that will improve the climate of ideas over time via research, education, and advocacy. Atlas remains faithful to ideas of its late founder, Sir Antony Fisher, whose life story demonstrates how an Intellectual Entrepreneur with principles and perseverance can be the catalyst to enormous positive change.
The Atlas Mission
The mission of the Atlas Economic Research Foundation, also known as the Atlas Network, is to discover, develop and support Intellectual Entrepreneurs worldwide who advance the Atlas vision of a society of free and responsible individuals.
