About

Pinpoint Policy Institute is a nonpartisan, nonprofit educational organization dedicated to promoting and defending the essential pillars of American prosperity.

The American experiment, rooted in entrepreneurship, innovation, individual rights, and the rule of law, has delivered the highest standard of living to its citizens, offering the promise of building a better life for themselves and their families, and a more prosperous future for every successive generation. While that promise has propelled our nation forward for more than 200 years, it is a fragile gift that must be safeguarded. Increasingly, the heavy hand of government through ill-conceived legislation, burdensome regulation, and/or misguided oversight threatens to stifle market dynamism, while parochial interests seek to reimagine the American market economy as a zero-sum game.

Pinpoint Policy Institute has a story to tell: It will relentlessly advance the cause of prosperity, offering an optimistic vision for the American economy, and vigorously defend the pillars of American excellence. To fulfill this mission, Pinpoint will wage a ceaseless campaign to promote economic growth with fact-based research, policymaker education, agile communications, and public engagement. We will pinpoint and push back on the policies and voices who would stifle the American entrepreneur.
