BRT Vice Chairman: Address fiscal, tax and trade issues

Jun 13, 2012

David M. Cote, the chairman and CEO of Honeywell International, Inc. and Business Roundtable's vice chair, appeared on CNBC this morning to discuss the economy and jobs. Basic message? To ensure economic growth, the United States must address critical fiscal issues, taxes and trade.

Government needs to both regulate and enable, and we need to focus on the enabling side in addition to regulation so that business can do what it does. Right now we're not seeing the kind of progress that we need to to create that enabling kind of structure, if you will, and that's why we need to address the debt, we need an energy policy and we need to address trade.
