Episode Guide »
Guests: James W. Owens, former Chairman and CEO of Caterpillar, and current Senior Advisor to Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Company. Greg Brenneman, Chairman of CCMP Capital Advisors and Executive Chairman of Quiznos Corporation Floyd Kvamme, Partner Emeritus of Kleiner, Perkins Caufield and Byers venture capital firm and co-founder of National Semiconductor. What if we cut corporate taxes, legislators committed to specific long-term tax rates so companies could better plan ahead and we made 4% economic growth per year a goal instead of settling for the anemic 2% we've had for the past few years? Jim Glassman and prominent business leaders discuss the current economic climate for corporations and what steps should be taken to improve short and long-term growth.
