We don’t need a CEO in charge

Are we sure a president needs to have experience as a CEO of a Fortune 500 company? A president with CEO experience does not necessarily perform well with the country’s economy.

The best economic performances were under presidents Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan, who had no experience whatsoever in running a business.
