Istituto Bruno Leoni was established in 2003 to promote “ideas for the free market.” IBL aims to contribute to the Italian political discourse, to enable a proper appreciation of the role of liberty and private enterprise as pillars of a more prosperous and open society. IBL is structured based on the model of the think tanks in the English-speaking world: non-profit research centers, with no political affiliations, aiming to offer a fruitful contribution to the political debate. The policy ideas promoted by IBL aim to create a greater “breathing space” for civil society and empower individuals, giving more resources back to businesses, and freeing competition and exchanges, to the benefit of the general welfare and increasing the wealth of society and its members.
