BUSINESS FORWARD FOUNDATION is a research and educational organization that takes a business-minded look at policy issues affecting America’s economic competitiveness. Our research and events have covered the costs and benefits of immigration and health care reform, the impact climate change is having on American businesses, best practices in workforce development and comparisons of leading deficit reduction plans.
We generally structure our reports to answers the questions business leaders ask most often, often using new data and recommendations provided by business leaders participating in our programming.
The resources below demonstrate the Foundation’s approach.
