The Wyoming Liberty Group is a free market think tank in Wyoming, United States.[2][3] Founded in 2008, the group "invites citizens to prepare for informed, active and confident involvement in local and state government."[4]

Activity[edit]

In 2011, the Wyoming Liberty Group criticized the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, arguing that $400,000 had been spent for each job created.[5]

Wyoming Liberty Group has argued against government expansion and for private sector solutions, arguing the European welfare state is detrimental to freedom and individual development.[6]

In 2015, the Wyoming Liberty Group launched a national group, the Pillar of Law Institute. The group's aim is to fight restrictive campaign finance laws, which it characterizes as a free speech issue.[7]
