The Hammond Institute is a research center at Lindenwood University. Its mission is to foster free enterprise and civil and religious liberty through the examination of market-oriented approaches to economic and social issues. This mission is based on the view that a limited government, such as that laid out in the Constitutional foundation of the United States, is a necessary component of a just and prosperous society.
The Institute is directed by Dr. Howard Wall and comprises three focus centers:
Free Exchange TV:New episodes including interviews with Mo. House Speaker Tim Jones and Paul Patterson of Restore St. Louis, as well as discussions of free markets for kidneys, the philosophical underpinnings of libertarianism, the 2008 financial crisis, and more.
