Find out from a CEO and an economist on the frontlines of the American economy how President Obama’s anti-business policies are stifling job growth and discouraging investment. It is estimated there is currently nearly $2 trillion in private, investable capital that could be driving business expansion and job growth in America, yet it remains on the sidelines. What policies could the Federal government alter to create a climate where investors begin to drive American job growth again?
Join us as Andrew Puzder, CEO of CKE Restaurants – which oversees 3,150 Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s restaurants and $1.4 billion in revenue – and David Newton, Professor of Entrepreneurial Finance at Westmont College, explain why uncertain future tax rates and unfriendly federal policies in areas such as health care and energy are keeping investors and small businesses from using that money to help guide America out of its current economic rut.
Puzder and Newton will share insights from their book, Job Creation: How it Really Works and Why Government Doesn’t Understand It, and explain the importance of the Certainty Principle to economic growth in America.
