Description

This book exposes how the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), using erroneous data, have developed and perpetuated the belief that "small business creates all the new jobs". It shows further that, since the early 1990s, this belief has become a mantra for allowing the SBA and NBIF to lobby effectively for preferential treatment such as low-interest loans and exemption from mandated employee benefits and worker safety regulations.show more

Back cover copy

The Job-Generation Controversy shows precisely how anyone -- economists, policymakers, and the general public -- can fall victim to statistical fallacy and improperly manipulated data. Sometimes, as this book highlights, the consequences can be serious for millions of Americans.For more than twenty years, the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), using erroneous data, have developed and perpetuated the belief that "Small business creates all the new jobs". Since the early 1990s, this belief has become a mantra allowing the SBA and NFIB to lobby effectively, under the law, for preferential treatment such as low-interest loans and exemption from mandated employee benefits and worker safety regulations. However, as this book shows, while small businesses have created some new jobs, big businesses, those with more than 500 employees, remain the primary source of job generation in the United States.show more

No event shaped the twentieth century more than World War II, and no leader shaped the conduct of the war and the formation of the modern world more than President Franklin D. Roosevelt. In this anthology, leading scholars examine Roosevelt's role in the international arena, focusing on his diplomacy with Europe, Russia, the Baltic States, Canada, and the Caribbean; his relations with American Jews in the face of the Holocaust; his military appointments; and the operation of the Civilian War Services Division.show more
