A report released by the Small Business Administration's Office of Advocacy last week reveals that 99.7% of the nation's businesses are small (fewer than 500 employees), 50.1% of the nation's non-farm sector employees were employed by small businesses in 2000, and that small businesses created 75% of the net new jobs between 1999 and 2000.

Perhaps our presidential candidates should pay attention to these statistics and create some strong arguments for supporting the real driver of our economy -- small business -- during their race for the White House.
