CLEAN FREE MARKET POLICY & CLEAN TAX CUTS
The COVID-19 health crisis has had a drastic impact on the policy landscape and our work in policy development. We continue to pursue free market strategies, and are discussing potential pathways forward with our research partners. We welcome your ideas and suggestions.
Please feel free to review, download and share these documents summarizing proposals related to the Clean Free Market (CFM) and Clean Tax Cuts (CTC) policy concepts. These briefs describe collaborative works-in-progress, exploring new policies that seek to accelerate capitalization, participation, innovation and deployment for clean free enterprise, by expanding freedom and shrinking barriers for such solutions. We hope that publishing these briefs will advance knowledge, education and research into emerging policy solutions. Each draft may be updated as more information becomes available.
