Mary L. G. Theroux is an advocate for liberty. As a Senior Vice President of the Independent Institute, Mary evaluates, refines, and proposes solutions to major social and economic issues. The Independent Institute acts as an unbiased arbiter. While government grows at a steady rate, a crisis such as COVID dramatically spikes its control. When a crisis ends, controls and restrictions typically don’t return to the pre-crisis level. There are an increasing number of crisis situations. Thus, there is a “ratcheting” up effect.
“The enemy of the “ratchet” is information, which is what we at Independent work to disseminate broadly in furthering a free society that depends on people understanding that power corrupts, and consistently constraining government to the powers delineated in our Constitution, crisis or no.”
In addition to her work at the Independent Institute, Ms. Theroux is a Managing Director of Lightning Ventures, L.P., a San Francisco Bay Area investment firm, and Vice President of the C.S. Lewis Society of California. She is former Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Alameda County Salvation Army; former Chairman and current member of the San Francisco Salvation Army Advisory Board, and also serves on the National Advisory Board of The Salvation Army. She received her A.B. in economics from Stanford University.
Her opinions are sought by many and her articles have appeared in a wide range of publications including Forbes, Huffington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner, Visión Hispana, Houston Business Journal, Washington Examiner, San Francisco Business Times, Providence Journal, Tallahassee Democrat, and the Gallipolis Daily Tribune.
