As leader of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for the past twenty years, Richard Lesher has seen the collapse of small business's faith in the government's ability to solve problems. In Meltdown on Main Street, he offers a stinging indictment of years of policy-making and argues for a continuing push toward the traditional values of self-reliance, individual responsibility, and personal initiative.Citing the examples of dozens of actual businesses that have been crippled or destroyed by ill-conceived, poorly designed laws, Lesher pleads the case for small business against big government with wit, wisdom, clarity, compassion, and above all, facts and figures. With an unerring eye for absurdity, Lesher presents copious examples of regulatory snafus and bureaucratic pettiness that represent the worst of governmental inefficiency.With small-business leaders forming the core support group for the revolution against big government, Meltdown on Main Street perfectly embodies their dissatisfaction with the status quo and their vision of what government can and should do.
