The Focus of Our Research

Our multidisciplinary work focuses on researching the structural determinants of economic mobility and promoting solutions that remove barriers to individual achievement, earned success and opportunity.

Our initial research will focus on the relationships between income mobility and entrepreneurship, occupational licensing, and the sharing economy. Future issues that we plan to target include business dynamism, rule of law, regulation, education, trade, monetary policy, property rights and character development.

To accomplish our research objectives, we are looking to fund new research and innovative approaches that tackle various gaps in public policy research on economic mobility and its structural indicators. To propose a paper, please send a one-page proposal with a title, timeline and description of research methodology to research@archbridgeinstitute.org.

Regardless of political ideology, religion, race/ethnicity, gender, age, education level, or income, most Americans are proud to be American.
If we are concerned about poverty, inequality, and social mobility, we should be concerned about the collapse of marriage and widespread father-absence--particularly among America’s poor and working-class.
