The Show-Me Institute

The Show-Me Institute, a publicly supported charitable organization, is a state-focused think tank based in St. Louis that researches and promotes public policies that advance free market principles. Founded in 2005, the Institute’s scholars develop proposals to increase economic opportunity for ordinary Missourians. The Institute then promotes these solutions by making available studies, briefing papers, and other educational materials, which help policymakers, the media, and the general public gain a better understanding of the issues. Since its inception, the Show-Me-Institute has helped to bridge the political divide around several key issues.
