The Surprising Truth about the Uncorporation in the World's Economy

In very few areas of public life is the disconnect between what we are told and what really is so shocking as in business news. In fact, it’s easy to believe that the vast majority of business is done by big, greedy, publicly traded corporations, but it is wrong: very wrong.

Size Matters

    • 19.6 million Americans work for companies with fewer than 20 workers
    • 18.4 million for firms of between 20 and 99 workers
    • 14.6 million -100 to 499 workers
    • Only 47.7 million for firms with 500 or more.
    • And in other parts of the world the numbers are even higher. Uncorporate SME's drive the world, just not the stock market.

Arrived home one Christmas night to have dinner with family. There was a handwritten note from Dad. “You’ve got the rest of your life to change the world, but you’ve only got one shot at raising those four kids. Merry Christmas."

Thomas Gilbane Jr., Gilbane Construction

As young children my father taught us the importance of integrity above all else. He was fond of saying that a person’s reputation is their legacy–taking years to build and only minutes to destroy.

My dad always said that quality should be your No. 1 value
