UNITED FOR A FAIR ECONOMY & RESPONSIBLE WEALTH BUST THE 'SELF-MADE' MYTH IN NEW BOOK
The heroic "self-made" businessman is a tired and false cliche; it's time for a more honest national dialogue about what makes wealth and success possible. A new book by UFE Executive Director Brian Miller and Responsible Wealth Director Mike Lapham does just that. The Self-Made Myth: And The Truth About How Government Helps Businesses and Individuals Succeed uses stories of personal success to expose the false claim that business success is simply the result of heroic individual effort.
