The Free Enterprise Report is a marquis report that provides an objective, non-partisan, fact-based analysis of both the Colorado and Arizona economic landscapes and each state’s most pressing issues. The study is a year long undertaking and includes the CSI Economic Performance Index as well as a Free Enterprise Competitiveness Index across eight different policy areas. You can find the Colorado Free Enterprise Report here and Arizona’s here.

Both indices provide an opportunity to look backwards and better understand where Colorado and Arizona have been and what direction we are moving. We can better understand how we are performing relative to other states and we can equip policy makers, civic and business leaders with the best understanding of how our state is performing, where we are winning, where we are losing and how free enterprise principles can get us back on track.

Joining Chairman and Host Earl Wright are Lang Sias, CSI’s 2023 Mike A. Leprino Free Enterprise Fellow, Dr. Steven Byers, CSI Colorado’s Senior Economist, and Glenn Farley, CSI Arizona’s Director of Policy and Research. They discuss the depth and breadth of the report and cover issues such as crime, education, state budgets and much more.
