The Austrian Economics Center (AEC), in cooperation with over 100 leading think-tanks and universities across Europe and the Caucasus, and in association with international partners such as the Global Philanthropic Trust, The Krieble Foundation, Americans for Tax Reform, Competitive Enterprise Institute, World Taxpayers Associations, European Students for Liberty, and the Hayek Institut, is proud to present this year´s Free Market Road Show.

Measures to fight COVID-19 have led to a crisis composed of a bundle of economic, social, and health problems, mixed with a new understanding of governance. Individual and entrepreneurial rights have been eroded, nationalistic and paternalistic approaches to business, trade, and production – not least of medical supplies – were all of a sudden acceptable.

While the progress in vaccination campaigns bears great hope, there are still many aspects and consequences of the pandemic that need to be discussed and solved. Together let´s find the Way Out of the Gridlock!

Support our mission

The Free Market Road Show provides high-quality analyses and engaging events. Behind the scenes, there are countless hours of voluntary work but also remarkable costs for external services. Due to our free-market convictions, we don’t receive one cent of government money. We rely entirely on the generosity of freedom-loving private individuals such as yourself. If you are passionate about our cause and appreciate our work, then donating is one way you can continue to defend the heritage of individual liberty, free markets, and constitutionally limited government.

We appreciate every cent and will put it to good use.
