The Center for the Study of Market Alternatives at NNU

On liberty...

The Center for the Study of Market Alternatives (CSMA) was founded in 1976 by Caldwell, Idaho businessman Ralph Smeed for the study of political, economic and religious liberty. Now located at Northwest Nazarene University, the CSMA continues to serve as an educational resource for the exploration and promotion of these important liberties.


The Free Man's Almanac Quote of the Day

"Where there is a multitude of specific laws, it is a sign that the state is badly governed; for it is in the attempt to build up dikes against the spread of crime that men in such a state feel constrained to multiply the laws. Those who are rightly governed, on the other hand, do not need to fill their porticoes with written statutes, but only to cherish justice in their souls; for it is not by legislation, but by morals, that states are well directed."
