What is Business Roundtable

Business Roundtable (BRT) is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy.

Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote sound public policy and a thriving U.S. economy. See our plan for economic growth.

Business Roundtable promotes the best, modern governance practices that uphold the highest ethical standards and expand economic opportunity across the United States. These practices are detailed in the Roundtable flagship publication, Principles of Corporate Governance.

The U.S. tax code was last updated in 1986, before many Americans even knew what the internet was. We are losing innovative companies, big ideas and future growth because of our outdated system. The urgency for reform cannot be overstated – it’s time for an upgrade.

Transportation infrastructure is the backbone of a modern, competitive and productive economy. Stretched beyond capacity by the demands of today’s global economy and a growing population, America’s transportation infrastructure provides an opportunity for policymakers to reinvest in a critical driver of our entire economy.

In 2016, Business Roundtable will focus its efforts on greater job expansion and economic growth – national priorities that are inextricably linked. Informing our plan is our collective business experience as CEOs of America’s leading companies, experience that tells us what it takes to build momentum for the United States in in 2016 and beyond.

Open markets for international trade and investment are essential for supporting U.S. economic growth and jobs. A high-standard Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) would strengthen trade and investment relationships in the Asia-Pacific that are critical to future U.S. economic growth and global leadership.

Business Roundtable supports a smarter, more modern approach to regulation that promotes innovation, economic growth and job creation.

Business Roundtable CEO Survey

The Business Roundtable CEO Economic Outlook Survey, conducted quarterly since the fourth quarter of 2002, provides a forward-looking view of the economy by Business Roundtable member CEOs. The survey is designed to provide a picture about the future direction of the U.S. economy by asking CEOs to report their plans for their company’s sales, capex and employment in the next six months.
