The Minnesota Free Market Institute is a non-partisan, non-profit educational organization dedicated to the principles of individual sovereignty, private property and the rule of law. We advocate for policies that limit government involvement in individual affairs and promote competition and consumer choice in a free market environment. We conduct research, publish studies and reports and conduct public forums to involve Minnesotans in free market reforms enhancing the quality of life for all citizens of the state.

The Minnesota Free Market Institute approaches each project it undertakes from the perspective of maximizing free market principles in the service of public policy. We take that position not simply for ideological reasons, but because history has proven over and over again that free market principles produce the greatest good for the greatest number. It is our intent to provide a free market, liberty-oriented framework by which public officials craft public policy, by which legislative bodies approve public policy, by which journalists inform the public about and the public passes judgment on public policy.
