Program Description:

Reason Foundation is the publisher of Reason Magazine and home to a leading public policy think. Reason's public policy work promotes choice, competition, and a dynamic market economy. Current research areas include transportation, urban land use and economic development, environmental quality, and education. In addition, Reason brings nearly thirty years of experience in privatization, competitive contracting, and analysis of public-sector institutional reforms to enhance efficiency. Reason magazine, an independent monthly magazine of "free minds and free markets," advances liberty as the country's premier magazine of politics, culture, and ideas, serving as the center of a social movement. As a prominent network news correspondent puts it: "Thank goodness for Reason...one sane voice fighting tons of nonsense." Based in Los Angeles, with editors around the country, Reason has a circulation of approximately 41,000.

Program Long-Term Success:

Reason worked closely with the governors of California, Indiana, Florida, and South Carolina to restrain state spending and bring competition, transparency, and accountability to government. We published our 20th Annual Privatization Report, including essays from Margaret Thatcher, Mitch Daniels, and Mark Sanford.
