Our Mission

The Financial Policy Council Inc. (“FPC”)’s mission is to develop and encourage sound public policy based on the principles of free enterprise and wealth development as envisaged by the American Founding Fathers’ ideals. The FPC is an association focused on public policy that aims to educate and inform the public about economic and fiscal matters. We perceive America as the land of chance where liberty and prosperity have flourished. Our aim is to ensure America maintains an economic and regulatory framework conducive to economic development and the creation of wealth, and is not derailed by poorly conceived and reactive economic, fiscal and tax policies. Furthermore, we firmly believe that America is recovering and retaining its leading position in the global economic world. We aspire to accomplish our task in the following ways:


Entrepreneurs, investors and the public of the roles they can play to ensure that their opinions are heard by and persuade policy makers of the soundness of our public policy solutions.


Policy makers and the public to enable them to support and recognize sound financial public policy, with a clear understanding of the issues of concern to entrepreneurs, investors, and to the community at large.


We pursue our mission by conducting timely and accurate research on key policy issues and effectively marketing these findings to key policy makers, the news media of the nation, and to the academic and policy communities at large. We concur that it is important that individuals with real-world experience in business and in the entrepreneurship trenches, with extensive knowledge of the financial services industry, have a clear base to have their voices channeled to those who make crucial decisions that affect our nation’s fiscal health. The Financial Policy Council, chaired by Ziad Abdelnour and governed by an experienced Board of Directors, all with a deep and relevant experience, is an autonomous organization. The FPC depends on the general public, foundations, and businesses financial support to participate in its mission. The FPC does not accept government funds and, in accordance with its ideal of freedom, does not perform contract work. The FPC is a non-profit organization that is tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the United States internal revenue code.
