CEI’s Center for Technology and Innovation strives to keep the regulatory state from encroaching upon frontier industries and ensure that 21st century technologies are not shackled by 20th century regulations. We advance market discipline as superior to regulatory intervention; we legitimize market processes and forestall governmental restrictions on wealth creation. Our overarching goal is to persuade the public and policy makers that innovation tends to make the world safer, healthier, and happier, and that government regulation and intervention tend to do the opposite. Despite spending growth and entitlement paralysis, when we ignore regulation, we ignore the bulk of the government’s ability to interfere with and hamper free enterprise. Therefore, we seek to extend the institutions of liberty, such as property rights and contract, without which free markets cannot function effectively.
