Why Free Enterprise Matters

The role of the government is to create an environment where individuals and organizations can create prosperity through meeting the needs of others. The Founding Fathers asserted that the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are given to us by our Creator and not by our government. Only in a country where the government protects the personal and property rights of its citizens can free enterprise succeed and flourish.

Who We Are

The Free Enterprise Alliance was founded by the Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) to advocate for the voice of small business as well as open and fair competition in the construction industry. Since its inception, it has fought for these goals through research, education, outreach, as well as TV, radio and digital campaigns across the country.

We have executed/supported advocacy campaigns in 25 states (36 chapters) since 2008.

At the heart of the Free Enterprise Alliance’s mission is the belief that while we need government for common sense regulations, the scales have tipped too far in favor of government intrusion and its advocates. The Free Enterprise Alliance believes small business and entrepreneurs—not union bosses and federal bureaucrats—grow jobs and our economy.
