Welcome to the Pikes Peak Economics Club Web Site

by Dr. Paul Prentice, Ph.D. last modified Nov 03, 2014 10:06 PM
The Pikes Peak Economics Club (PPEC) was formed in 2004. Our mission is educational: to promote economic and civic literacy regarding free markets, private property rights, and limited government. It is our contention that you cannot have a controlled economy and maintain a free society.

PPEC Mission Quotes

"To be controlled in our economic pursuits means to be controlled in everything." – F.A. Hayek.

"[T]he burden of government is not measured by how much it taxes, but by how much it spends." -- Milton Friedman
