Greg Lindsay, 2002

Greg Lindsay AO (b. 1949) is the founder and executive director of the Centre for Independent Studies, a social policy and economic think-tank based in Sydney. In the mid-70s, Lindsay was working as a teacher, reading widely in philosophy and economics, and becoming increasingly concerned about the policies and conduct of state and federal governments. With funding and support from a number of businessmen and academic economists, he set up the CIS to investigate ideas that often ran contrary to prevailing ideology on social and economic policy. After nearly three decades of such exploration, Lindsay was Vice-President of the international Mont Pelerin Society, which was established by the free-market economist Friedrich Hayek to counter the rise of socialism after World War II, and the CIS has emerged as one of the most influential Australian think-tanks.
