State of American Business: A Preview
If you want a sneak peak at today's State of American Business address by Chamber President Tom Donohue, you can find it here in the form of an op-ed in The Daily Caller. Entitled, "A Plan for Economic Renewal," it focuses on four areas that will be business' priorities in 2011:
- First, we must restrain excessive regulation while reforming the regulatory process. At the federal level alone, regulations already fill 150,000 pages of fine-print text and cost Americans $1.7 trillion a year;
- Second, we will fight to advance a pro-America trade agenda with the goal of doubling exports in five years and creating millions of new jobs;
- Third is the need to rebuild America’s economic foundation--the platforms on which our society runs;
- Fourth, businesses, like all Americans, must do their part to help address another defining challenge of our times--the expansion of government spending and entitlements, and with it, the explosion of government debt.
We will post the text of his remarks here later, along with some additional commentary and links to some of the expected press coverage.
