Atlantic Legal Foundation strongly supports free enterprise. It not only is the engine that propels the nation’s economic well being, but also advances American society and our quality of life through technological innovation. For free enterprise to flourish, universities must train professionals of all types; the private sector must hire, and provide economic incentives for, individuals at all levels of the American workforce; businesses must be allowed to operate without oppressive and unnecessary regulation; and intellectual property must be protected from foreign and domestic theft.
