Founded in April, 1990 the Acton Institute looks to promote a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles. The Institute’s direction recognizes the benefits of a limited government, but also the beneficent consequences of a free market. It embraces an objective framework of moral values, but also recognizes and appreciates the subjective nature of economic value. To execute its mission, the Acton Institute organizes seminars aimed at educating religious leaders of all denominations, business executives, entrepreneurs, university professors, and academic researchers in economics principles, and in the connection that can exist between virtue and economic thinking.
