Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative

Economic Growth

Advancing policies that promote economic growth and strengthen our competitiveness in the global economy.

“Capitalist countries have shown that free markets are the surest path to economic growth, opportunity for all, and a just system based on human dignity.” -President George W. Bush

The George W. Bush Institute-SMU Economic Growth Initiative combines the Bush Institute’s action-oriented approach to policy and its extraordinary convening ability with SMU’s research and academic excellence, particularly in economics.

Our joint work draws from economic policy-making experience at the highest levels and from the cutting edge of research in economics to identify ideas for promoting innovation, entrepreneurship, and faster, more inclusive growth through global competitiveness and sound immigration policy.
