“We’re close to the tipping point where people will understand that economic opportunity serves them better than political opportunity,” so concluded Brian Lee Crowley, president of AIMS, in an indepth interview in Progress magazine reflecting on AIMS’ first decade.

Defending sound economics and good public policy is not always a popular thing to do, especially in a region where one of our chief growth industries has been bad economics and poor public policy, but it is the job the Institute has set itself over the past decade. As Crowley observed, “What I’ve learned is that it is very hard to be the first person to say something. But you quickly discover that once you’ve done it there are a number of people who in their heart of hearts know it is true and they take courage from the fact that you have said it.”

The article by John DeMont also touches on equalization, education, health care, offshore energy and Atlantica.
