It’s a fact: CEO Governors are great for Nevada’s economy.
Unconvinced? Consider this:
Fact: Most politicians are lawyers.
Few of the law school graduates serving in office have experience managing a business. They have little or no experience in the private sector. Yet they make decisions that impact small businesses and private sector workers.
Fact: Incomes increase, and unemployment drops when a governor is also a business leader.
One study found that electing a “CEO Governor” leads to a .6 percentage point higher growth rate of real personal income per capita and a .6 percentage point decline in the unemployment rate.
Fact: When business leaders are governor they lower income inequality.
The same study found that on average, income inequality decreases under a “CEO Governor’s” leadership, suggesting that lower income individuals’ economic lives are improved from having a business owner in the governor’s mansion.
Why business owners govern better:
- Unafraid to take risks—They don’t fear change and are more likely to be open to implementing economic reform.
- Talented at spotting inefficiencies—They have a knack for recognizing what isn’t working and making the necessary cuts or changes.
- Fans of deregulation—Deregulation and promotion of the free market are two factors that have shown to positively influence the economy.
