SPECIAL REPORT: Medicare & Single Payer: The Facts

Scroll Down for Issue Briefs & Reports

The Ethan Allen Institute educates about and promotes issues that affect each citizen’s ability to participate in a free market with constitutionally limited interference from government. Some specific areas of focus include:

  • Vermont’s economic future, particularly the vitality and diversity of its competitive free enterprise sector.
  • The fiscal practices and condition of state government – taxation, spending, and borrowing.
  • State and local regulatory practices, and their effect on the economy and the rights of the people.
  • The improvement of education for all Vermont children, and particularly the expansion of competition and choice for all.
  • The preservation of free, accountable, democratic government, where public decisions are made at the level as close as possible to the people themselves.
  • The strengthening of Vermont community and family life, and the protection of local government from burdensome and costly mandates.
  • Respect for Vermont’s constitution and opposition to judicial activism.
