The trust aims to foster research and encourage public policies that promote individual freedom and economic liberty while at the same time advancing a commitment to personal responsibility and a respect for traditional American values. One of the foundation’s chief objectives is to help develop policies that advance liberty without encouraging license, and that demand personal responsibility without compromising freedom. Issues the foundation supports include: Tax and budget issues, cost-benefit analysis of regulatory practices, welfare policy, K-12 reform, environmental policy, and legal reform .
