Big picture

Time period Development summary More details
1991–2014 Background Jerry Taylor, Joey Coon, and Will Wilkinson all work at the Cato Institute during parts of this period. The Koch v. Cato dispute happens in 2012, in which Taylor and Coon take the side of Ed Crane (the president at the time who is replaced by John A. Allison IV). [FIXME: I've seen mentions to the effect that Taylor et al. were unhappy with this, and left to start Niskanen, and also arguments to the effect that Taylor changed his mind on climate change and wouldn't be able to push that view at Cato so left to start Niskanen (?). Citations?]
2014–2015 Establishment The Niskanen Center is established and begins to maintain an online presence. It is covered in some news sources but has not officially "launched" at this point.
2015–2017 Official launch and continued work The center officially launches and begins pushing out work. It also receives funding from the Hewlett Foundation and the Open Philanthropy Project among others.

Meta information on the timeline

How the timeline was built

The initial version of the timeline was written by Issa Rice.

Issa likes to work locally and track changes with Git, so the revision history on this wiki only shows changes in bulk. To see more incremental changes, refer to the commit history.

Funding information for this timeline is available.

What the timeline is still missing

  • TODO Find some refs for the relationship between Cato v. Koch and the departure of Taylor and Coon and the establishment of Niskanen.
  • TODO Figure out what to do with the "cause area" column. Some things don't seem to fit in well, and Niskanen's categorization seems a bit odd.
