Way to Go!

From a press release from The Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration:

"Small Business, Big Contribution

"Small Business Continues To Generate 50 Percent Of Private Non farm GDP

"WASHINGTON, D.C. – Small business is a big contributor to the nation’s economy, generating 50 percent of the private, non farm gross domestic product (GDP), according to a study released today by the Office of Advocacy of the U.S. Small Business Administration.  The study covers the period 1998 – 2004, and confirms the findings of earlier research."

Once again statistics confirm the huge contribution that independent business people make to our American way of life.   In spite of the built-in advantages enjoyed by  big companies, including favorable laws, both tax and otherwise,  independent business  continues to be the engine that drives the economy, especially on the local level.   It’s all the more reason why  we should continue to keep pressure on  Washington and on our state capitals to  write laws  that don’t discriminate against  smaller  organizations.  Small business is good for America!
