Austrian Economics Center
The Austrian Economics Center AEC promotes the ideas of the Austrian School of Economics as a viable economic alternative in Austria and elsewhere not only by means of a public think tank but also as an academic Institute. Its main goal is to help create a free, responsible society. Furthermore the Institute, which is based in Vienna, takes up topical questions concerning economic and social politics and offers studies and solutions on a scientific basis and wants to improve public understanding of the key economic questions to promote a free society. It closely cooperates with similar institutions and helps organize international conferences, e.g. the Free Market Road Show. It is politically independent.

In support of its goals, the AEC carries out a range of activities as both a public policy think-tank and academic research institute. It considers many topical and timely questions concerning economic and social policies, and publishes analyses, working papers and other studies inspired by the ideas of the Austrian School of Economics. The AEC cooperates closely with many other institutions and organizations. It helps organize and sponsor international conferences such as the Free Market Road Show® and is a local sponsor of Liberty Fund Colloquia. The AEC is non-partisan and politically independent. It has the accounting status of a scientific organization. Thus, all donations to the AEC are tax-deductible
