CEI Releases Free Market Reform Agenda for the Trump Administration


Providing guidance in five different issue areas, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) today offers its free market policy reform agenda for the incoming Trump Administration. Aimed at strengthening the economy and removing barriers to economic freedom, the series of memos provide recommendations and guidelines for actions federal agencies should take in the near future. Ranging from replacing key agency heads to overturning burdensome regulations, CEI’s recommendations promote innovation, job creation, and financial freedom for Americans. 

CEI President Kent Lassman said, “Too much power in the executive branch is the path to tyranny, and too little oversight has brought regulatory burdens on many Americans.  The time is ripe for reining in federal agencies to encourage the economic freedom that leads to wealth generation that benefits all Americans.”
