Beschreibung:

This myth-busting book overturns one of today’s most influential narratives – the idea that wealthy people in America have created their wealth on their own, by dint of their personal ingenuity and hard work – and reveals the true story of the role of society and government in wealth-building. And it spells out the implications for taxes, business success, economic recovery, and government programs.
The Self-Made Myth exposes the false claim that business success is the result of heroic individual effort with little or no outside help. Brian Miller and Mike Lapham bust the myth and present profiles of business leaders who recognize the public investments and supports that made their success possible—including Warren Buffett, Ben Cohen of Ben and Jerry’s, New Belgium Brewing CEO Kim Jordan, and others. The book also thoroughly demolishes the claims of supposedly self-made individuals such as Donald Trump and Ross Perot. How we view the creation of wealth and individual success is critical because it shapes our choices on taxes, regulation, public investments in schools and infrastructure, CEO pay, and more. It takes a village to raise a business—it’s time to recognize that fact.
