About the Free Enterprise Project

The National Center for Public Policy Research’s Free Enterprise Project (FEP) exposes efforts by left-wing interest groups to divert businesses away from best practices and into left-wing advocacy. Through research, media appearances, coalition-buildling, and even face-to-face confrontations at stockholder meetings, the FEP works to guard the American free-enterprise system from what is often its worst enemy: Corporate executives who don’t adequately evaluate the impact of their decisions on shareholders, the economy and ultimately, the American people.
