No business operates in America today under purely market forces. Myriad rules and regulations govern every area of business conduct: from establishing the firm to ensuring protection of the environment to hiring and firing policies. More than half of all startups that fail in the first year do so not because they produce inferior products or neglect to analyze the competition, but because they do not understand the regulatory environment in which they operate. In What Entrepreneurs Need to Know about Government, Wesley Truitt presents the most comprehensive overview of government regulation and its impact on business to date. Covering all levels of regulation (federal, state, and local/municipal) and all stages in a firm's growth cycle (establishment, expansion, and liquidation), Truitt shows entrepreneurs and managers of established business alike how to navigate the minefield of laws and policies that influence business activity. Featuring descriptions of all the key agencies, summaries of major laws, practical checklists, and extensive listings of informational resources, What Entrepreneurs Need to Know about Government is an essential guide to regulation and compliance, sources of government assistance and protection, and strategies for successful enterprise growth.See also Federal Trade Commission and Securities and Exchange Commission AOL Time Warner, 24 Apple ... 129, 237 Best Buy, 135 Bloomberg, Mayor Michael, 76 BMW, 220-21 Board of Kqualization, 156 Boeing Co., 25, 70, Index.
