The Atlas Economic Research Foundation announced the Macdonald-Laurier Institute as the winner of the 22nd Annual Sir Antony Fisher International Memorial Award for its 2010 publication, The Canadian Century: Moving out of America's Shadow, by Brian Lee Crowley, Jason Clemens, and Niels Veldhuis.
Brian Lee Crowley accepted the award on behalf of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute at the annual Fisher Memorial Award Dinner in Dallas, Texas on April 27, 2011. The award includes a $10,000 prize.
"The Fisher Award recognizes books published by think tanks that can help create a future marked by more freedom and more prosperity," said Atlas CEO Brad Lips. "What this institute has done is provide a success story of fiscal discipline and reform that many nations desperately need today."
