)-- Financial Policy Council:
The mission of the Financial Policy Council Inc. ("FPC") is to formulate and promote sound public policy based on the principles of free enterprise and wealth creation as envisioned by the ideals of the American Founding Fathers. FPC is a public policy-oriented organization which seeks to educate and inform the public about economic and fiscal matters.
The Financial Policy Council views America as the land of opportunity where freedom and prosperity have flourished. Their goal is to ensure that America retains an economic and regulatory system conducive to economic growth and wealth creation, and is not derailed by poorly formulated and reactive economic, fiscal and tax policy. In addition, FPC strongly believes that America must reclaim and retain its leading role in the global economic community.
