American University Kogod Business School: ACCF on “Best Ideas to Grow the Economy”

ACCF President Mark Bloomfield is featured in a new report from American University’s Kogod Business School titled, “Best Ideas to Grow the Economy,” which offers 50 recommendations from Fortune 500 CEOs, small business owners, startup founders, state and local government officials and thought leaders from across the country.

Despite the U.S. job market nearing full employment, it has not produced substantial wage growth or equitable economic growth. Once the final vote is counted on Election Day 2016, American voters will begin to seek answers around how and when the new president will stimulate our economy.

Mr. Bloomfield warns the next President that uncertainty is the number one impediment to getting the economy moving again. He recommends taking steps in the first 100 days to restore confidence in the country.

“Ours is still the strongest economy in the world. Provide leadership. We need real leadership to overcome our dysfunctional political situation, to get the first important pro-growth economic initiative through the Congress and signed,” Bloomfield writes. “And make clear it’s just the first of several important pro-economic growth initiatives that you plan to sign into law.”
