The Continental Economics Institute (CEI) is a fully independent think tank that pursues the educational
mission of exposing the ruinous consequences of inflation, protectionism, excessive taxation, market
interventionism, and militarism.

The objective of the CEI's research program consists in discerning, analyzing and designing those institutions
that promote the "progressive accumulation of new capital and its utilization for the improvement of technical
methods of production" (Mises) in order to create a humane and prosperous society.

The CEI faculty is formed as a free association of scholars from around the world who work in the tradition of
classical liberalism, modern libertarianism and the Austrian School of Economics.

The Continental Economics Institute was founded by Professor Dr. Antony Peter Mueller.

Human Action

governments." - Ludwig von Mises:

consequently no safety."
