So I was, you can imagine, a little surprised to hear from President Obama about the major role government plays in making small businesses successful. Especially when I had understood from small business owners – thank you for correcting me, Mr. President – that government was mainly something that got in their way.

But maybe the president is correct! Maybe, just maybe, government does play a substantial role in the success of small businesses.
