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.

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 We are losing innovative companies, big ideas and future growth because of our outdated system.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.

Open markets for international trade and investment are essential for supporting U.S. economic growth and jobs.

More than 95 percent of the world’s population, and 80 percent its purchasing power, are outside the United States. This means future U.S. economic growth and jobs increasingly depend on expanding U.S. trade and investment opportunities. Free trade agreements do exactly that.

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.
