Center for Economic Liberty and Property Rights

The Center for Economic Liberty and Property Rights is dedicated to protecting economic liberty and private property rights from excessive and unreasonable government regulation. The Center advances the principle that the right to keep the fruits of one’s labor is one of the most important property rights upon which our other liberties rely.

Center Tenets

Property rights and economic freedom are the fertile soil in which all other rights grow and thrive. The environment is best protected and preserved where free markets thrive, capitalism is robust, and property rights are respected. Taxes may be legitimately imposed only to the extent necessary to pay for the essential and constitutionally permitted activities of government. To tax more than this is a form of tyranny and extortion. Government mandates and regulations too often exceed constitutional authority, waste resources, erode freedom, diminish property rights, and produce harmful unintended consequences.
