The Milken Institute is an independent economic think tank that publishes research and host conferences that apply market-based principles and financial innovations to a variety of societal issues in the US and internationally.

The Institute's mission is "to improve the lives and economic conditions of diverse populations in the United States and around the world by helping business and public policy leaders identify and implement innovative ideas for creating broad-based prosperity."

The Institute focuses on:

• human capital: the talent, knowledge and experience of people, and their value to organizations, economies and society;

• financial capital: innovations that allocate financial resources efficiently, especially to those who ordinarily would not have access to them, but who can best use them to build companies, create jobs, accelerate life-saving medical research and solve long-standing social and economic problems; and

• social capital: the bonds of society that underlie economic development, including schools, health care, cultural institutions and government services.

It is nonprofit, nonpartisan and publicly supported.

Founded in 1991, by Michael Milken, the Milken Institute is based in Santa Monica, Californiamarker.


The institute has published studies relating to human capital, access to capital, financial structures and innovations, regional economics, healthcare economics and medical research.
