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. When a government agency can decide which businesses to favor, it opens the door for the misguided pursuit of investment fads or, at worst, the potential for corruption and abuse. Our research offers sound policies for government, and we’re not afraid to fight when we see bad ideas that put taxpayers at risk.
