The Show-Me Institute is an American think tank based in St. Louis, Missouri that promotes public policies that advance free market principles. Founded in 2005, the organization focuses on economic policy issues in the state of Missouri. The stated mission of the Show-Me Institute is "improving the quality of life for all citizens of Missouri by advancing sensible, well-researched solutions to state and local policy issues." The organization was founded in 2005 by Rex Sinquefield, who serves as president of the institute's board of directors.
The institute's first study, released in March 2006, argued for the elimination of the earnings tax in St. Louis and Kansas City. In February 2007, the institute released a report on mayoral control of the St. Louis public school system, suggesting mayoral control would be preferable to school board control. In January 2008, the institute released a study examining the effects of a tuition tax credit program in Missouri. The study suggested legislation to reimburse the parents of private school children for property taxes would be good public policy.
