Answer: YES

Experience in the challenges and barriers of operating a business and employing workers under current political and economic circumstances could be huge assets for a business leader becoming president. Knowledge to implement needed reforms and corrections may help unencumber the crushing barriers and over-interference imposed that keep the economy from thriving. Administrative experience by a capable CEO could help unravel the federal government’s massive bureaucracies. Political governance, however, also requires cooperation, compromise, and negotiation skills.
