Ep. 97: Big Business gets a bad rap – Ep. 97: Big Business gets a bad rap – AEI

“Small business is the basis of American prosperity.” “Small businesses are overwhelmingly responsible for job creation and innovation.” “Small business owners are the basis for democracy in America.” All these statements are wrong, argues Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation. It’s Big Business that’s responsible for today’s gains in income, productivity, and jobs — and policymakers and voters need to recognize these facts. He joins the podcast to discuss this argument from his new book, “Big is Beautiful: Debunking the Myth of Small Business,” co-authored with Michael Lind.

He’s also a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, serves on the advisory councils of several different institutions, and has worked in government under presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama in various capacities.
