  • The Institute communicates widely the output of its work and that of others to stimulate further research and to enable better informed decisions of individuals, governments, and corporations.
  • The Institute and its research collaborators seek to understand long-term changes in the human and economic environments, with particular attention to the role human actions play in influencing those outcomes.
