What a fascinating entry. I can hardly believe it's been tagged "low importance". In particular, it is surprising to me that there is virtually no background available, via Google, on the MEI's founder the late George Camp Keiser. Presumably you need plenty of cash to launch such a prestigious enterprise as the MEI clearly is - and you need to be very connected. Apparently he was enough of both to fund the Institute, but, again, a Top Ten (Google) comes up with virtually no mention of his mysterious career/origins. We at the wiki are very curious about such things! I opened a page for him. Anyone should please feel free to fill in the blank. Is he, for instance, in any way related to billionaire philanthropist Buffet/Gates buddy George Kaiser and or Kaiser-Francis Oil and the BOK Financial Corporation?
