Mission Statement

The Missouri Council for a Better Economy (MCBE) supports efforts to bolster economic growth in Missouri, especially the Saint Louis region, through issue education to the public, improvements in public education, and reforms in local and state tax policy and related issues. MCBE aspires to be a catalyst for community discussion on core issues of governance, taxation and governmental policy related to economic development with particular emphasis on the discussions around the relationship between St. Louis City and St. Louis County. MCBE will advocate for improvements in local governance structures through public education.
