FACTSHEET: Committee For Economic Development, (CED)

DETAILS

2000 L Street NW, Suite 700 Washington, DC 20036
Phone: 1(800) 676-7353
CED is non-profit, non-partisan business led public policy organization. CED is dedicated to policy research on major economic and social issues and the implementation of its recommendations by the public and private sectors. Membership is made up of some 200 senior corporate executives and university leaders who lead CED’s research and outreach efforts.

CED believes that "Global warming and dependence on foreign oil are two issues that cannot be shunted aside until later. A carbon tax or similar policy is needed, but imposing new costs on business during a recession makes little sense. Why not go ahead and show our willingness to address these issues by passing legislation with a trigger that would delay implementation until the economy was healthier?" http://www.ced.org/commentary/65-commentary/267-we-needed-a-fiscal-stimulus-yesterday
