It's pretty well established that AEI is primarily a right-wing,
conservative, pro-business think tank - with a mission statement that
starts: "The American Enterprise Institute is a community of scholars
and supporters committed to expanding liberty, increasing individual
opportunity and strengthening free enterprise." (http://www.aei.org/about/)
AEI policy studies are pretty consistently anti-regulation.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
