Prosperity Formula

Recognizing that good policy is central to our mission, we have developed programs designed to:

  • promote a deeper, more sophisticated understanding of markets and their role in facilitating economic growth and job creation
  • improve the policy dialogue around financial-markets issues
  • generate practical, nonpartisan ideas and solutions
