The JOBS Act of 2012, which eased many securities regulations, was intended to improve access to capital and job creation by small businesses in the United States. This panel discussion will explore various aspects of the JOBS Act: What were its origins? Which measures worked as intended? And what did not work as intended? What have we learned about where most job creation has occurred in the past 10 years? What are possible opportunities to improve the JOBS Act and/or enact new legislation that goes even further to improve access to capital and job creation?
