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.

More Than Leaders. Leadership.

Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.

About BRT

Business Roundtable supports tax and budget policies that promote U.S. business investment, competitiveness and job creation. Specifically, the Committee focuses on pro-growth reform of domestic and U.S. international tax rules and advocates for slowing the growth of federal spending to stabilize federal debt and achieve long-term fiscal sustainability.

Business Roundtable Statement on Treasury’s Tax Proposal

The proposed tax increases on U.S. companies by the Treasury threaten the jobs of tens of millions of U.S. workers and our future economic growth. These unprecedented tax increases could not come at a worse time for struggling U.S. workers and businesses. We urge Congress to reject these proposals.

Business Roundtable Statement on President Obama’s International Tax Proposals

President Obama’s plan today to increase taxes on American corporations is the wrong idea at the wrong time for the wrong reasons. This plan will reduce the ability of U.S. companies to compete in foreign markets, which will not only reduce jobs, but will also cripple economic growth here in the United States.

Letter to Secretary Murphy Re: File Number S7-27-08

Business Roundtable supports the efforts of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to promote the use of a single set of high-quality global accounting standards.

Castellani Letter to Congress Re: Budget Resolution

The budget resolution under consideration proposes to implement major new policies which if implemented as proposed would seriously damage our nation’s ability to recover from the recession and impair our international competitiveness in the future.

BRT Spearheads Coalition to Protect American Jobs

The 200 undersigned companies and trade associations write today to express our strong opposition to provisions in the Administration's budget to increase taxes on U.S. companies that are competing for business in international markets.

Business Roundtable on Tax Increase on U.S. Companies

To Members of the U.S. House of Representatives:

Business Roundtable, an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies, urges Congress to reject the Administration's budget proposal to increase taxes on U.S. companies competing for business abroad. The present rules were designed by Congress specifically to provide a level playing field for U.S. companies to compete in the international economy. The Administration's budget proposal would increase taxes by $210 billion over 10 years through changes to "deferral" and other tax provisions.

Harold McGraw III's Remarks at the National Press Club Newsmaker Event

Thank you, Mark, for those kind words.

And my special thanks to you and your distinguished colleagues for providing me the opportunity to speak at this prestigious venue.

As Mark mentioned, today I’m here in my capacity as Chairman of Business Roundtable. We’re an association of the nation’s CEOs, and we, like all Americans, have come together – Democrats and Republicans – to help find an urgent solution to this financial and economic crisis that is like no other before.

Letter to Congress Regarding Economic Recovery

Business Roundtable supports the Administration and Congress’ goal to develop an economic package to put our economy back on the path of long-term growth and urges swift action.

Harold McGraw III Letter to President-Elect Obama

With more than two million jobs lost in 2008 – and accelerating job losses in the past three months – decisive action is needed if we are to return our economy to a path for growth and full employment.
