EPISODE 73: “Big is Beautiful” with Robert Atkinson


What do you think about the following statements?

Small businesses are overwhelmingly responsible for job creation, innovation and American prosperity.
Small businesses are more productive than big companies.
And small business owners are the core of democracy in America.
Yet Washington, controlled by big business and engaged in “crony capitalism,” systemically discriminates against small business.

We all know this is true, right?

Well, no, these things are not true. Or at least, mostly not true.

Joining me to explain why is Robert Atkinson, author of “Big is Beautiful: Debunking the Myth of Small Business” and Ron Nicol who led Boston Consulting Group’s Americas Practice and was global leader of its Media, Technology and Communications Group.
Rob, founder and president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, is one of the country’s foremost thinkers on innovation economics.
