Business does not speak with one voice. Like all Americans, business leaders want different things from the next President. Some favor liberal immigration policies that would allow them to import more skilled workers, for instance. Others argue we need to beef up our schools. Some say both things must be done. Many favor lower taxes, especially on corporations, since they compete in a global arena in which they say the U.S. is disadvantaged these days. Others say they would willingly pay more to put our government and financial systems on stronger footing. Some say the next President should go slow to try to fix systemic problems that are threatening economic growth, relying on the fixes put in place so far to play out. Others say activist government is essential. Take a look to see just how varied their views are.
