We are the local chapter for The Bastiat Society headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina (the umbrella organization for all Bastiat Society Chapters), which itself is a major program of the American Institute for Economic Research ("AIER"). See www.bastiatsociety.com for additional information, click on "Chapters" and the Colorado Springs chapter for information about the Bastiat Society of Colorado Springs and to register to receive announcements of events.
