The Christian Science Monitor hosted a “One Minute Debate” this week on how government can create more jobs. Heather Boushey from the Center for American Progress argued that the government is on the right path with legislation like the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010. CEI’s John Berlau disagreed and pointed out that the best way to increase hiring by small businesses is by cutting back on federal regulation. Their debate was also featured on Yahoo News. Read Berlau’s argument here.
