Bush Connections To The ACCF Directors and Staff
January 16, 2002
David Duncan, the recently fired head of the Enron Account for Arthur Anderson was a director of ACCF (American Council for Capital Formation), a conservative think tank in Washington.
Look who else was a director...
as well as former directors
Throughout the past year, the ACCF made the case before policymakers in Congress and the Administration and opinion shapers in the media and the private sector for pro-growth tax policy initiatives for individuals and businesses.
For individuals, those initiatives included elimination of the estate tax, reform of the private pension system (including an increase in Individual Retirement Accounts), and reductions in individual capital gains tax rates.
For business, the pro-growth agenda included measures to reduce the cost of capital for new investment (including investments that promote environmental goals), repeal of the corporate alternative minimum tax, a cost-effective approach to climate mitigation, and a reduction in the corporate capital gains tax rate.
