Government grief; how to help your small business survive mindless regulation, political corruption and red tape.
Handlin, Amy H.

Handlin (marketing, Monmouth U. and deputy minority, New Jersey General Assembly) offers a guide for small businesses in how to negotiate the tangled mass of growing and overlapping federal, state, and municipal regulations. Noting that small businesses already bear a disproportionate share of regulatory costs and are hurt more than large corporations when corruption affects local markets, the author makes it clear that those skills will become more important as the regulatory burden increases. Her approach is a realistic and readable prescription with two simple parts: what you need to know and what you need to do. (2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
