The Power of Independent Thinking

Establish Your Legacy of Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty

“I want the principles I believe in—affirming limited government, individual liberty, a competitive economy—to far outlast my own reach. That’s why I’m investing in the Independent Institute by becoming a member of its Safe Harbor Legacy Society. I invite all those who care about the future of liberty and the rule of law to join me.”
David Teece, CNZM, Ph.D.; Professor in Global Business, U.C. Berkeley; Founder and Chairman, Berkeley Research Group, LLC; Philanthropic Chairman, Safe Harbor Legacy Society
