Debunking the Myth of Small Business

Why small business is not the basis of American prosperity, not the foundation of American democracy, and not the champion of job creation. In this provocative book, Robert Atkinson and Michael Lind argue that small business is not, as is widely claimed, the basis of American prosperity. Small business is not responsible for most of the country's job creation and innovation. American democracy does not depend on the existence of brave bands of self-employed citizens. Small businesses are not systematically discriminated against by government policy makers. Rather, Atkinson and Lind argue, small businesses are not the font of jobs, because most small businesses fail. The only kind of small firm that contributes to technological innovation is the technological start-up, and its success depends on scaling up. The idea that self-employed citizens are the foundation of democracy is a relic of Jeffersonian dreams of an agrarian society. And governments, motivated by a confused mix of populist and free market ideology, in fact go out of their way to promote small business. Every modern president has sung the praises of small business, and every modern president, according to Atkinson and Lind, has been wrong. Pointing to the advantages of scale for job creation, productivity, innovation, and virtually all other economic benefits, Atkinson and Lind argue for a “size neutral” policy approach in both the United States and around the world that would encourage growth rather than enshrine an anachronism. If we overthrow the “small is beautiful” ideology, we will be able to recognize large firms as the engines of progress and prosperity that they are.

The seven worst words ever spoken came out of Brittany Gregory's mom's mouth at breakfast, "I signed you up for math tutoring." Sure, she probably needs it (proba-bly nothing, she'll fail without it), but the thought of having to stay in that school longer than she had to every day makes her sick. It's not the school's fault... just the few jerks inside. Brittany's tutor is none other than Matt Taylor, senior quarterback-- all around hottie. At first, she's shy around him because, hello, Matt Taylor! But as he shows more and more unexpected kindness toward her, Brittany softens around him. Unfortunately for Brittany, Matt's former girlfriend, the beautifully wicked Kendra Moses, has tormented Britt since eighth grade about her weight. In an unusual moment of brains, Kendra realizes Brittany's initials spell B.I.G.-- a hilarious (to the cheerleader) irony since Brittany isn't the smallest girl at school. With the Red Ball (Valentine's Dance) approaching, Brittany has to decide if her growing feelings for Matt are real, or if he's secretly been playing a part in Ken-dra's game all along.

Why are there more poor people with small bank accounts than rich people with big bank accounts? Why is the small almost always more numerous than the big in the world? Empirical examinations of real-life data overwhelmingly confirm the existence of such uneven size proportions in favor of the small. There are more small planets and stars than big ones in the cosmos. There are more small molecules than big molecules in the chemical world. There are more small families with few children than big families with many children. In geological data, there are more small rivers than big rivers, and there are more harmless small earthquakes than devastating big ones. There are by far many more small creatures than big creatures in the biological world. There are only about two million big whales swimming the oceans, yet there are over 300 billion small birds flying the sky. Tiny little ants are even more abundant, with estimates of over 100 trillions of them walking the earth In number theory as well, there are more small prime numbers than big prime numbers for integers. In census data, there are more villages than towns, more towns than cities, and more cities than metropolises. In history, there were more small wars with low death toll than horrific big wars with high death toll such as WWII. The vast list of topics & disciplines obeying this quantitative law of nature confirms the fact that the phenomenon is nearly universal. This book discusses in detail several real-life case studies; presents three distinct explanations for the phenomenon; and numerically quantifies the small is beautiful phenomenon in order to obtain an exact measure indicating by how much the relatively small is more numerous than the relatively big.

Sowohl in Japan als auch in Deutschland wurden nachlassende Wettbewerbsstarke und Fuhrungskraft beobachtet. Japan wurde nachgesagt, wegen uberkommener japanspezifischer Strukturen in Wirtschaft und Verwaltung nicht in der Lage zu sein, den Aufgaben einer modernen Volkswirtschaft nachzukommen. Insbesondere sei Japan nicht in der Lage, zukunftstrachtige Bereiche zu entwickeln. In Deutschland werden neben den Lasten der Wiedervereinigung die Dynamik hemmende burokratische Strukturen und das ubermassige Gewicht der -sozialen Komponente- als Problem angesehen. Diese Schrift fokussiert die vor diesem Hintergrund in Japan und Deutschland ergriffenen Massnahmen zur Neupositionierung in der asiatischen Region und in der Europaischen Union. Behandelt werden regionale Integrationsprozesse einschliesslich der werbungsspezifischen Integration und der Finanzmarktintegration, Fragen der Deindustrialisierung, der Gestaltung des Arbeitsmarktes, Strategien zur Rohstoffsicherung und Umstrukturierungsmassnahmen von Unternehmen."

Peter Drucker’s lively and thoughtful memoirs are now available in paperback with a new introduction by the author. He writes with wit and spirit about people he has encountered in a long and varied life, including Sigmund Freud, Henry Luce, Alfred Sloan, John L. Lewis, and Marshall McLuhan. After beginning with his childhood in Vienna during and after World War I, Drucker moves on to Europe in the 1920s and early 1930s, describing the imminent doom posed by Hitler and the Nazis. He then goes on to describe London during the 1930s, America during the New Deal era, the World War II years, and beyond. According to John Brooks of The New York Times Book Review, “Peter Drucker is at a corner cafe, delightfully regaling anyone who will listen with tales of what must be one of the more varied—and for a practitioner of such a narrow skill as that of management counseling, astonishing—of contemporary professional lives.” Dorothy Rabinowitz of the Washington Post writes, “The famous are here as well as the infamous.… All are the beneficiaries, for better or for worse, of Drucker’s unerring eye for psychological detail, his remorseless curiosity, and his imaginative sympathy.… Drucker’s book appears in a stroke to have restored the art of the memoir and of the essay.” Adventures of a Bystander reflects Drucker’s vitality, infinite curiosity, and interest in people, ideas, and the forces behind them. His book is a personal and informal account of the rich life of an independent man of letters, a life that spans eight decades and two continents. It will be of interest to scholars and professionals in the business world, historians, sociologists, and admirers of Peter Drucker.
