Influencing Policy

For nearly thirty years, the ACCF and its research affiliate, the ACCF Center for Policy Research, have brought the message to U.S. and international policymakers, the media, and the public that a nation’s economic strength and stability depend upon well-thought-out economic, regulatory, and environmental policies to promote capital formation, economic growth, and a higher standard of living for all.

The ACCF’s policy goals–strong capital formation, a balanced regulatory regime, and cost effective environmental policies–address these challenges and can help assure that the United States continues its role as the world’s pre-eminent power in an increasingly global economy. Achieving these goals requires limiting the rising share of scarce resources absorbed by the government. It is also imperative to reduce the taxation of saving and investment by businesses and individuals. These objectives, along with sound regulatory policies based on cost-benefit analysis, are key tools for promoting prosperity in the U.S. as well as for the less fortunate around the globe.

To carry out its mission, the ACCF and ACCF Center for Policy Research continue to make significant contributions in the economic and environmental policy arenas by testifying before Congress, sponsoring research, hosting forums, publishing reports, maintaining a Web site,, and meeting with U.S. and international policymakers, business leaders, and the media to focus on pro-capital formation

National and regional publications, financial journals, and political and economic experts in the national media often cite ACCF and Center research on the key economic, regulatory and environmental policy issues.

Why the accolades? Because the ACCF, a trusted advocate of economic and environmental policies that promote economic growth, and the ACCF Center for Policy Research, widely respected for its analysis of economic and climate policy issues, represent the prototype of effective business representation today.

The ACCF and ACCF Center for Policy Research commit to a renewed focus on their mission to promote public policies supportive of capital formation. In the days ahead, the ACCF and ACCF Center for Policy Research can and will make a difference.
