How To Stimulate Small Business Jobs Growth

As a runner-up to the Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce Businessperson of The Year in 2007 I know a thing or two about business and economics. For instance I know that this purported letter from a conspicuously anonymous, alleged reader of the reactionary conservative rag, the National Review is hogwash:
Small business will start to hire when one big thing happens.
Sales Growth. End of story.

This goes beyond simple intellectual dishonesty and charges head-first to the realm of deliberate misrepresentation.  There is no correlation between small business' hiring practice and sales growth. Only the presence of robust regulation can create an environment conducive to increased employment opportunity in the private sector. By extension, government expansion is a necessity if one wishes to create a job-friendly atmosphere.

  1. Maybe the government should just force everyone to start a small business. If your business isn't profitable then you can go to jail and have your assets seized and turned over to someone who will be productive with them. I can definitely see where you are coming from. The federal government just isn't big enough. Your imagination is small.
