What We Do

The mission of the Center for the Study of Capitalism is to explore the dynamic power of capitalism and especially its role shaping the 21st century and the future of humanity.

We are experiencing major business disruption and economic turmoil. Education and markets must be re-aligned to successfully provide skills individuals need to secure a good future. Government and industry possess powerful tools that could challenge ideas around free speech and privacy.

The Center for the Study of Capitalism works with businesspeople, communicators, researchers, and students to foster a better understanding of capitalism and its role in a fast-changing, technologically driven world. We focus our support in funding research on four impact areas:


How might we mitigate current crises and manage the natural world ethically while still supporting global development?


How might we manage technology and resources to sustain a healthy, growing world population?


How might we create opportunities for intellectual development to encourage and enable participation in a capitalist economy?


How might we create business, community, and government systems to foster individual creative potential and general prosperity?
