ON-Lion Letter
"Taxes and spending receive plenty of public scrutiny, which makes regulation an increasingly attractive option for those who favor greater political intervention in the economy," writes Fred L. Smith, Jr., president of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) in Washington, D.C., in his introduction to Liberate to Stimulate.  "Our goal is to ensure that regulations are subject to the same degree of oversight as taxes, spending, and legislation in general.

"The Tea Party movement's success in the recent elections suggests that awareness of these burdens is growing," Smith continues.  "Thus, we are more hopeful that economic liberty and regulatory reform will make some significant headway in 2011.  To further that goal, CEI is unveiling a Liberate to Stimulate deregulatory agenda, which is summarized in this document."

The agenda includes 31 specific items to secure the economy, nine items to protect the environment, and seven items to improve health and safety.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports CEI.
