U.S. Chamber of Commerce

How Small Business Owners Feel About the Economy

Be the first to review

The Chamber of Commerce of the United States is the world’s largest business organization. Our members range from the small businesses and chambers of commerce across the country that support their communities to the leading industry associations and global corporations that innovate and solve the world’s challenges to the emerging and fast-growing industries that are shaping the future. For all of the people across the businesses we represent, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a trusted advocate, partner, and network, helping them improve society and people’s lives. 

What We Do

Since our founding, the U.S. Chamber has advocated for policies that help businesses create jobs and grow our economy. Building on a strong legacy of trust and a track record of success, we help today’s businesses start, grow, and thrive in a complex and constantly changing macro environment. We inform our members with timely policy analysis and legal advice, connect them with leaders in business and government through world-class events and intimate gatherings, and equip them with tools and resources to help them succeed. Above all, we serve as their ally and champion on Capitol Hill, in the courts, in the state houses, and in markets worldwide. No matter who or where our members are, we are their seat at the table and voice in the debate. 

We advocate, connect, inform, and fight for business growth and America’s success.

What We Believe

While the country has changed since the U.S. Chamber of Commerce was established over a century ago, our foundational belief has not. We believe in the ability of American businesses to improve lives, solve problems, and strengthen society. And throughout the years, a clear pattern has emerged. America works when citizens, business leaders, and government officials work together. There are greater opportunities for better jobs, new industries, and fairer laws. Communities thrive, the economy grows, and our nation’s positive influence in the world increases. When that partnership breaks down, those opportunities and the country’s optimism fade.

To us, the choice is simple. The future we want to build gives everyone the opportunity to build a better future for themselves. It’s why our job today—and every day—is to build the strongest relationship possible among the American people, business leaders, and elected officials in Washington, state capitals, and countries around the globe. This empowers businesses to play a vital and needed role in a healthy democracy. It allows us to shape and deliver the bold policies that matter most to our members. And it enables millions of businesses to create the jobs and economy that offer every American the chance to pursue their goals.
