Social Market Foundation

SMF

London, United Kingdom

SMF undertakes and commissions original research and writing on a range of public policy issues where understanding both the vitality of markets and the need for social consent can advance debate and help to shape new ideas. It develops ideas that are pro-market but not laissez-faire, setting markets in their social context and recognizing that outside the realm of theory they are underpinned by social consent. Unlike think tanks of the orthodox right, SMF believes in promoting sustainable welfare systems; and unlike think tanks of the established left, its agenda is to make these welfare systems provide better service to consumers through more effective competition and choice.
