Strategic Notes from FEE—A Message from the Executive Director

MARCH 03, 2014 by WAYNE OLSON

Dear Friend of FEE,

FEE is pleased to inaugurate a new monthly update series called “Strategic Notes from FEE,” coming out on or about the 1st of the month.

Each update will put the spotlight on one of our programs in particular, discussing its role in FEE’s overall strategic vision and how this affects the way that program works. Through concrete examples, we will show you how we propose to accomplish our mission, which is to inspire, educate, and connect future leaders with the economic, ethical, and legal principles of a free society.

We are focused on being a gateway for young people to get to know the freedom philosophy, at a time of life when philosophical “searching” is intense.  We then connect them with others who share their passion, making FEE a key source of new leaders to advance the cause of liberty.

To make this happen, all of our programs need to work together to turn FEE into the definitive community (both online and in-real-life) for young people to explore ideas on liberty.

This is easier said than done, requiring imagination, teamwork and execution across the whole array of our programs.  I’m thrilled with the way the talented professionals on the FEE staff are rising to this challenge.  I’m hoping to share some of this excitement with you in this new series of updates. Look for the first installment on April 1st (no fooling!).  Please don’t hesitate to write me at executivedirector@FEE.org with any questions.

Sincerely,

Wayne Olson

Executive Director

CURRENT ISSUE

July/August 2014

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
