AUSTIN – Today, the Texas Public Policy Foundation released the paper Do Institutions Matter for Prosperity in Texas and Beyond? that compares measures of economic prosperity, highlights which institutions work best and identifies opportunities for improvement.

The paper’s author, Dr. Vance Ginn, senior economist and director of the Center for Economic Prosperity offered the following statement:
“There’s overwhelming evidence that the Texas Model of inclusive institutions provides a framework supporting more job growth, higher wages, lower income inequality, and less poverty. Other states and D.C. would be wise to consider adopting the Texas Model that champions individual liberty, free enterprise, and personal responsibility.”
