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.
