Montana represents the “Last Best Place”, the last frontier of urban development and a holdout for the western spirit of rugged individualism.
The appeal of the frontier has contributed to Montana’s rapid growth, but not all are thriving. There is a growing division between those experiencing the benefits of growth and those left behind.
What’s more, powerful interests have used a one-sided story of economic division as rationale for more government control, promoting more regulations, more taxes and more government favors which we know only erect barriers in the way of opportunity.
That’s exactly why we founded The Frontier Institute.
We elevate objective research and powerful stories in the public debate to overcome this one-sided story and cultivate informed leaders who understand why economic opportunity, not government control, will allow all Montanans to thrive.
I hope you will partner with us in supporting this important mission.
