Topic - Independent Institute

The Independent Institute is a libertarian think tank based in Oakland, California. Founded in 1986 by David J. Theroux [http://www.independent.org/aboutus/person_detail.asp?id=531], the Institute sponsors studies of major political, social, economic, legal, environmental and foreign policy issues. It has more than 140 research fellows. The Institute was originally established in San Francisco, and was re-located in 1989 to Oakland. In 2006 the Institute opened an office in Washington, D.C. Its symbol is a lighthouse, chosen because of its symbolism of how services commonly regarded as public goods can be privately owned and operated. - Source: Wikipedia
