Business Roundtable (BRT) today released, “It’s Time to Act for America’s Future: 2013 CEO Growth Agenda,” detailing specific policy recommendations to revive the economy in the near term and ensure higher levels of growth and job creation over the long term.
BRT CEOs, who lead major American companies operating in every sector of the economy, call on the Administration and Congress to:
- Stabilize and reduce the federal debt relative to the size of the economy by boosting economic growth and reducing fiscal deficits through, among other steps, comprehensive tax reform and entitlement modernization.
- Unlock private sector investment and job creation through policy measures that capitalize on America’s strengths by: opening markets for international trade and investment; realizing the promise of affordable, abundant energy; promoting smart regulations; reforming the housing finance system; and implementing more effective cybersecurity protections.
With a new Congress and Presidential term come new opportunities for cooperation and progress. The “time to act for America’s future” is now.
