We are independent
IGIEL is entirely independent of any political interest, business organization or organization. It is funded by voluntary donations from individuals, companies, and foundations supporting its work. It does not accept nor performs contracts work which may compromise its independence. IGIEL does not promote any economic theory, dogma, concept but presents and analyzes all of them. IGIEL believes in human beings’ right for analysis, assessment, full access to public data and information, constructive discussion and criticism. Innovation requires openness and freedom, and opportunities to share new ides with everybody.
The World is already a global community of millions of economic thinkers, ranging from Nobel Prize winning economists to businessmen, politicians, teachers and students who have emerged out from the shadows of customary conformist and orthodox (prevailing) economic thought, touted by those who cannot be innovative. We advocate and support new thinking and provide the promise of a free and open discourse to all who accept this concept.
IGIEL wants to involve in innovative thinking average citizens, believing that the World will develop not when elites are happy, but when the societies are satisfied. This can be achieved only by innovation –which is leading to change.
We believe in a mix of the old and the new. IGIEL is privileged to attract and cherishes opinions of seasoned and well-experienced experts, researches, and businessmen. At the same time however, IGIEL focuses on devising opportunities and ways for the new generation to speak out. This World will be theirs (new generation) – before you know it! IGIEL supports the new generation of economics scholars, innovation-minded individuals and attempts to create new outlets for their ideas.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. - Sir Winston Churchill
IGIEL endorses this statement. We promote innovative thinking even if it is not fully understood and accepted by all. Dialog and free expression of ideas is necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century. We invite all who are willing to take this risk. Isn’t it a part of being innovative? If you have doubts, ask Leonardo da Vinci or Galileo – it took years for the societies to understand their geniuses and innovation.
