The Economic Myth of Small Business: By David Hirschberg

Product Details

Synopsis
The Job-Generation Controversy shows precisely how anyone–economists, policymakers, and the general public–can fall victim to statistical fallacy and improperly manipulated data. Sometimes, as the book highlights, the consequences can be serious for millions of Americans. For more than 20 years, the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), using erroneous data, have developed and perpetuated the belief that Small business creates all the new jobs. Since the early 1990s, this belief has become a mantra for allowing the SBA and NBIF to lobby effectively, under law, for preferential treatment such as low-interest loans and exemption from mandated employee benefits and worker safety regulations. However, as this book shows, while small businesses have generated some new jobs, big businesses, those with more than 500 employees, remain the primary sources of new job generation in the United States. This book exposes how the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), using erroneous data, have developed and perpetuated the belief that “small business creates all the new jobs”. It shows further that, since the early 1990s, this belief has become a mantra for allowing the SBA and NBIF to lobby effectively for preferential treatment such as low-interest loans and exemption from mandated employee benefits and worker safety regulations. This text analyzes the role of small business in the US economy. It debunks the job-generation myth, highlights the increased job insecurity and income disparity for workers in small businesses, and explains why these companies do not deserve the preferential treatment they recieve.
