Analysis / Bias
In review, the CED “conducts policy research on 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.”
In general, this website promotes education through our current capitalist system. For example, in the story What CEOs Can Do to Improve Higher Ed Outcomes. Regarding immigration, this source uses factual data that indicates we need more immigrants to sustain our economy, which is at odds with the current conservative platform.
