Business and Job Creation
Want a thriving economy? The Goldwater Institute knows that best business climate is one where low taxes and minimal regulation benefit all employers – not one where subsidies and special tax breaks offer an advantage to a chosen few.

Our research offers sound policies for government, and we’re not afraid to fight when we see bad ideas that put taxpayers at risk.
