Through Reason Public Policy Institute, with its emphasis on empirical results, practical innovation, and a burgeoning national reputation, we get new policy ideas implemented. Through Reason Magazine, with its growing and increasingly influential audience, we shape public opinion in favor of individual liberty in all areas of human activity."
