Additional source: Antitrust Law & Economics Review Vol. 25, No. 2, Judicial Seminars: Economics, Academia, and Corporate Money In America --by Nan Aron, Barbara Moulton, and Chris Owens '6 Mornings Per Week' "Although closely affiliated with GMU [George Mason University], the Law and Economics Center is run independently and is supported entirely by private donations. Corporate interests provide a significant share of the Center's funding. In 1991, for example, when the Center spent $380,000 in 'direct' expenses for federal judges' seminars, 31% of the Center's total income of $967,917 came from corporate contributors. These donors included corporate giants Exxon, General Motors, Bethlehem Steel, ITT, and Pfizer, Inc., the General Electric and Mobil Foundations, and the Monsanto Fund. Most of the remainder of the Center's 1991 budget (65%) came from independent foundations, including Olin, Bradley, and Scaife, which have been key players in efforts to mold a jurisprudence more favorable to business interests. The Center's basic 'economics institute' for federal judges is held once a year, spans a two-week period and is designed to familiarize participants with the fundamental tools of microeconomic theory."
