At the Crossroads: The Michigan Small Business Lobby
MetadataShow full item record
In order to understand why past attempts to organize have failed, the analysis will review the history of small business' political activity. IBA and other business group's legislative efforts will be critiqued in terms of their effectiveness in pursuing Michigan's legislative agenda. Suggestions will be made as to how IBA and the small business community as a whole can make their political activities more effective by applying standard interest group theory. Finally, an analysis of three of the major issues facing Michigan business today (regulatory relief, single business tax reform, and the unemployment trust fund deficit) will demonstrate the need for positive action by the small business community.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
