What We Believe

The Free Enterprise Forum, a privately funded public policy organization, is dedicated to providing clear positive balance to the discussion of important issues of the day.

What we believe:

  • We believe in private enterprise and economic freedom.  Such freedom allows individuals to grow and maximize their inherent potential.

  • We believe economic growth is good for our community.  Improving and expanding economic opportunities and vitality is critical to sustaining the quality of life for both existing and new residents.

  • We believe in limited government.

  • We believe in local government control of local issues within the basic structure of Virginia’s government.

  • While we believe in local control and effective local government, we also recognize many issues are regional in scope and require the coordination and cooperation of several jurisdictions.

  • We believe wherever possible government should encourage market-based approaches.

  • We believe government ordinances and policies should be constructed with input from those affected by such proposals and then administered in a fair and consistent manner.

  • We also believe in the freedom to fail.  Progress, even through creative destruction, is an important aspect of economic health.

  • We believe in individual and corporate responsibility.  Individuals, governments, and organizations should be held accountable for their actions.
