What we believe about how businesses succeed and how wealth is created has a powerful impact on the public-policy choices we make (including how we tax upper-income people). UFE’s new book, The Self-Made Myth: And the Truth About How Government Helps Individuals, exposes the reality that any enterprise is the result of a variety of factors, including government support: No one in this country ever “made it” alone. Co-authors Mike Lapham and Brian Miller jump-start the conversation surrounding the “self-made” myth and its impact on our political climate; joining them is guest speaker Bill Gates Sr., who wrote the book’s foreword—a particularly successful upper-income person who also didn’t make it on his own. Presented by United for a Fair Economy.
