Essential legislative reform that is necessary to re-stimulate entrepreneurship in the United States was the focus of remarks made by Steve Case, Chairman and CEO of Revolution LLC and co-founder of America Online, at a breakfast meeting of The Economic Club on February 23. A passionate advocate for entrepreneurism, Mr. Case said that immigration reform and action to improve access to capital and streamline the public-offering process were critical steps toward rekindling the primary engine for economic growth in America–new businesses. Subsequent to Mr. Case’s appearance at the Club, the House of Representatives on March 8 overwhelmingly approved legislation that would ease access to investments and capital markets for small businesses. Similar legislation has been proposed in the Senate.
