This paper provides findings from a survey of participants in professional academic organizations supportive of free enterprise, entrepreneurship and classical liberal ideals. We present data on the subset of respondents who do not currently hold, but aspire to hold, a chair or professorship in free enterprise or entrepreneurship.
These scholars reveal their perspectives on a range of issues. Major sections of the survey included institutional information; individual demographics, including research productivity and outlets; perspectives on politics and economics; intellectual influences; and an assessment of connections to major think tanks and networks that support and inform the work of scholars in free enterprise and entrepreneurship.
