Small busi­nesses do not pos­sess t he r e s ou r c e s , c e r t a i n op­por t u n i t i e s , mo­men­tum and bal­ance sheets of big busi­nesses, with the re­sult that risk prof iles of small busi­nesses dif­fer dra­mat­i­cally. With this risk, in­cen­tives and re­wards need to match en­tre­pre­neur­ial in­vest­ment for the es­tab­lish­ment of new busi­nesses. Risk is a pric­ing mea­sure and the re­ward for the risk should be en­hanced through the com­pany tax rate.

We call for no tax for the f irst t wo years of new busi­ness es­tab­lish­ment fol­lowed on by a pro­gres­sive tax sys­tem.
