The Institute studies this and other monetary and economic trends and presents its research to the public in a number of publications. The primary vehicle for publishing our research online is this website, www.soundmoneyinstitute.com. The Sound Money Institute is a project of the Western Center for Journalism, an IRS recognized 501 c 3 organization.
