Economic Policy

The U.S. Chamber's Economic and Tax Policy Division focuses its work on advancing policies that create jobs and foster economic growth. Our division is committed to pro-growth tax policies that preserve America's global competitiveness and is opposed to tax increases that reduce businesses' ability to grow, invest, and create jobs. We believe a successful economy depends on a tax code that rewards achievement, encourages investment, and promotes growth. Below you will find links to our policy objectives and accomplishments, recent Hill communications, and other relevant materials.
