The President called this meeting to discuss the effects of his administration’s economic policies on small business, with a particular focus on the impact of the fiscal cliff discussions.

UncommonGoods is a Brooklyn-based online and catalog retailer that works with independent artists to sell creatively designed products, more than half of which are made here in the US.

As a founding member of B Corp - a sustainability standard that ensures companies achieve a positive impact on employees, community and the environment - UncommonGoods played a key role in passing legislation in New York State that created legal standing for these types of public benefit corporations.

In addition to browsing through the UncommonGoods holiday catalog with the President, David also had the opportunity to share some of his views on economic policy and small business.

David came to the meeting prepared with a list of issues that are important to UncommonGoods. Among the points on his list were:

• Avoiding fiscal brinksmanship;
• Standardizing online sales tax rules;
• Working towards a balanced budget through wise modifications to both revenue and expenses;
• Incentivizing elementary and secondary schools to teach computer programming;
• Achieving immigration reform;
• Implementing tort reform to reduce legal expenses for businesses, doctors and other organizations;
• Developing a more effective approach to patents;
• Increasing the minimum wage and indexing it to inflation;
• Publicizing the efforts of groups like B Corporations that are working to address social and environmental issues through business.

After the meeting, David said,“I was honored to be invited to The White House and came away very impressed with the Administration’s commitment to job growth and taking a thoughful approach to getting our budget back in balance.”
