About The Catalyst

The Catalyst is a quarterly publication that operates from the belief that ideas matter. They shape public policies, spur action, and lead to results.

Each issue presents compelling essays that address a central question or theme.  Along with Bush Institute directors and fellows, The Catalyst convenes leading experts and writers, as well as new and rising voices, to address each topic.

This being a non-partisan journal, we hear from people of different political persuasions. We simply ask that they present ways for America to become a stronger, more prosperous, and caring country. At the same time, we hope their ideas will lead to freer societies around the world, open markets that promote growth and opportunity, compassionate institutions that serve individuals, and a vigorous yet respectful American role in the world.

The journal is a digital publication, using creative ways to present material. You can read us for free, too. On occasion, we hold forums as we release issues of The Catalyst, presenting contributors and other experts to address the central question.

In between the quarterly publications, we update readers with fresh content. All along, we seek to build trust with our readers through the quality of our work and the power of our ideas.
