The solutions to worldwide poverty lie in institutional changes—changes that occur only as the result of a shift in popular and intellectual perceptions. In order to foster these changes, The Independent Institute has created the Center on Global Prosperity to bring together the intellectual, moral, and practical analyses necessary to shed light on the viability of market-based solutions. The results of these studies are utilized to produce books, conferences, and major media programs for academic, political, business, religious, and civic leaders, as well as the general public.

We used the DGs of the EU to generate a basic list of topics. This list is going to be steadily extended. However we try to preserve a persistent list of topics.
