In review, the CED “conducts policy research in the following issue areas: fiscal health, education (including early childhood, K-12, and postsecondary), health care, campaign finance, women in corporate leadership, regulatory policy, immigration, infrastructure, and tax reform. CED aims to encourage American business leaders to take a more expansive view of their responsibilities by practicing what it calls “business statesmanship” — recognizing that business leaders can promote societal health by engaging in and speaking out for the common good on timely public policy issues.”
