Independent Launches Catalyst to Offer Ideas and Hope to Young Careerists

OAKLAND, CA — Faced with skyrocketing medical costs, expensive housing options, and mountains of student debt, young adults are increasingly asking: How did we get stuck with these problems, and what must be done to fix them? To offer encouragement and solutions on these and related issues, the Independent Institute has launched the new website: Catalyst.

Like Love Gov2: A Crisis Not to Waste, the second season of the hit video series, Catalyst speaks directly to the interests and concerns of Millennials—finishing school, beginning careers, living on their own, starting families—all while dealing with problems in the economy, education, healthcare, housing, and privacy.

Rather than ranting about the problem or cheering for Team Red or Team Blue, Catalyst gives young adults a forward-looking, optimistic, solutions-oriented perspective. Featuring a mix of infographics, quizzes, polls, videos, in addition to a variety of articles, Catalyst brings non-partisan, market-based, and community-oriented solutions to young adults.

By providing content that addresses the issues they encounter daily—things such as student loan debt, the high cost of healthcare and housing, the declining quality of public schools, and threats to personal privacy—Catalyst offers a topical point of view on current events that you’ll probably see nowhere else.

Readers will find a welcoming community with new information, fresh ideas, and practical tools that can serve as a muse for those pondering the causes and possible solutions to the most pressing challenges they currently face.
Come join the excitement. Visit the website at and follow on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

The Independent Institute is a non-profit research and educational organization that promotes the power of independent thinking to boldly advance peaceful, prosperous, and free societies grounded in a commitment to human worth and dignity.
