Reasoned solutions in the nation’s interest

Sustaining Democratic Institutions

CED has long held that a vibrant and strong economy results from business competition in the marketplace, not in the political arena; and that Washington works best when Americans trust that it is working in the nation’s interest. CED is deeply concerned about challenges to the strength of the nation’s democratic institutions, including practices that elevate the interests of private actors at the expense of the public good. To ensure the health and vitality of our democracy, CED continues to engage in research and outreach focused on restoring the strength of, and trust in, a government that is responsive and accountable to the people.
