Political Economy Research Institute (PERI)

The Political Economy Research Institute (PERI) promotes human and ecological well-being through original research. The institute's approach is to translate what is learned into workable policy proposals that are capable of improving life on our planet today and in the future. In the words of the late Professor Robert Heilbroner, we at PERI “strive to make a workable science out of morality.”
