A robust U.S. economy opens doors for every American, offering better job prospects, increased wages, improved well-being, and the means to access goods and services that enhance their quality of life.

Dr. Mike Katz, with his extensive business and executive leadership experience, is prepared to lead in the U.S. Senate by directing and executing comprehensive policies and strategies that fortify the nation’s economy.

As an independent servant leader, devoted solely to the best interests of all Delawareans rather than a political party, Mike is well-positioned to unite Senators and Congress members from both political parties, fostering collaboration to enact legislation that improves the lives of all Americans.

Dr. Mike’s focus revolves around crucial areas and strategies aimed at building a competitive and resilient American economy that solves complex upstream challenges:

  • Invest in education and workforce development to equip America’s workforce with the skills required for future jobs.
  • Incentivize private sector investment in research and innovation.
  • Upgrade and modernize infrastructure, including transportation and energy, through public-private partnerships to support economic growth.
  • Promote small business growth and job creation by implementing policies that alleviate regulatory burdens on small businesses and start-ups, providing access to capital and resources.
  • Introduce tax reform policies that spur economic growth, reduce corporate tax burdens, and provide incentives for business investment.
  • Simplify the tax code to ensure simplicity, fairness, and competitiveness.
  • Ensure financial stability through a well-regulated financial system, instilling confidence in the American banking and financial sectors.
  • Foster energy independence and sustainable energy source development.
  • Encourage businesses to adopt emerging technologies for increased productivity and competitiveness.
  • Streamline and enhance government operations to improve efficiency.
  • Embrace fiscal responsibility by passing balanced budgets and implementing a plan to pay down America’s national debt.

A strong American economy requires comprehensive policies grounded on upstream problem-solving that addresses the multifactorial interconnected issues defining our economy.
