The American Enterprise Institute’s governance is overseen by our Board of Trustees, composed of leading business and financial executives. The Institute’s research agenda and scholarly appointments are reviewed by our Council of Academic Advisers, a group of distinguished outside scholars. AEI’s day-to-day management comes from the officers on our executive team.
The American Enterprise Institute sponsors original research on the world economy, U.S. foreign policy and international security, and domestic political and social issues.
The American Enterprise Association (AEA) arrived in Washington in 1943, in the middle of World War II. In Congress there was talk of making wartime price and production controls permanent when the war ended to prevent another depression.
