  • Description

This report was part of the five-year Milstein Symposium initiative to advance innovative, nonpartisan, action-oriented ideas to help rebuild the American Dream. The report described how small businesses have traditionally been a large driver of economic growth, noting that "65% of new jobs created since 1995 have come from small enterprises." However, growth among startups has slowed, which could represent a troubling trend for the U.S. economy if not reversed.
