The National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA) is a non-profit American think tank〔
〕 whose goals are to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control. Topics addressed include reforms in health care, taxes, Social Security, welfare, education and environmental regulation.

The NCPA's founding president is libertarian economist John C. Goodman. In June 2014, the NCPA board and Goodman accused each other of misconduct and Goodman left the organization.〔(Ramesh Ponnuru - "John Goodman Knows Wehbycare Won’t Work" ), June 12, 2014〕

In 2005, the NCPA dismissed Bruce Bartlett, a Republican commentator, after he submitted a copy of the manuscript of his book, "The Impostor: How George W. Bush Bankrupted America and Betrayed the Reagan Legacy".〔("In Sign of Conservative Split, a Commentator Is Dismissed" ), Richard W. Stevenson, ''New York Times'', October 18, 2005〕
