Topic - Goldwater Institute
The Goldwater Institute is a Phoenix, Arizona-based conservative public policy research organization established in 1988. The president is Darcy A. Olsen. The Goldwater Institute advances public policies with emphasis on lower taxes, limited government spending, school choice, and a reduction in government management of the economy. It describes itself as "an independent government watchdog supported by people who are committed to expanding free enterprise and liberty," and it is devoted to the principles championed by the late Senator Barry Goldwater such as "individual rights, economic freedom, and a government of strictly limited powers." In addition to its Arizona staff, the Goldwater Institute has a number of affiliated senior fellows who are not in residence, including Carrie Lukas, Dan Lips, Randy Barnett, James Gwartney, Alan Kors, and Gordon Tullock. - Source: Wikipedia
