Mercatus Center at George Mason University

Arlington, United States

Mercatus researchers conduct research, work with students to apply ideas to problems in the world, and make research findings available to the media, policymakers, and the general public to connect academic learning with real-world practice. As the name implies, Mercatus research focuses on how markets solve problems. Mercatus scholars conduct their own research in an effort to determine which institutions—markets, governments, civil society, or combinations of the three—promote the good social outcomes.
