The Institute for Free Enterprise (IUF) is Germany’s think tank promoting free markets. The IUF is closely working with Anglo-American think tanks.

Vision: We live in a free society. Property is inviolable. Decisions and behaviour of individuals are free from government interventions.

Mission: We speak up for a comprehensive understanding of the importance of property rights and freedom of contract as the basis of a free society.

We achieve our mission through uncompromising 

  1. advocacy for free trade
  2. positioning against the reintroduction of a wealth tax
  3. positioning for abolition of inheritance taxes

The IUF is funded exclusively by private sponsors. We reject all state funding, but we are happy about your donation.
