The primary mission of the George Stigler Center has been the support of world-class economic research on the interaction between the public sector and the private economy. Our research carries on the important tradition of Chicago economics. This tradition is characterized by a lively appreciation of the role of free markets in solving economic problems and by a belief that economists should study real world behavior and avoid formalism for its own sake.
Just this past year, the Stigler Center has supported research into the costs and benefits of a policy of containment versus waging war in Iraq, hosted a panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities facing the financial exchanges, and hosted a Chicago-style lecture by Czech President Vaclav Klaus that warned of the dangers in the evolution of the European Union. These and other accomplishments could not have occurred without the generosity of the Center's supporters.
We wish to thank the following for their support:
