Public policy and regulation

Voice of the middle market

RSM is actively engaged on Capitol Hill and elsewhere to ensure the voice of the middle market is heard amid the D.C. shuffle.

As political winds continuously shift, middle market businesses are often left scrambling to keep up with the latest policy and regulatory changes. Our professionals meet regularly with the policymakers responsible for legislative and regulatory change, conveying the perspectives we hear from clients directly and through our proprietary research.

We discuss in depth the unique challenges faced by middle market companies, often sharing views policymakers would not otherwise receive. We also work closely with many of the top national business organizations to ensure the voice of the middle market is reflected in their policy efforts.

Addressing the issues

Our professionals engage on the most relevant issues affecting the middle market—the latest on tax policy, trade, economics, health care, infrastructure, cybersecurity, financial services and more. We also regularly produce publicly accessible webcasts, articles and videos about these issues, providing a unique window into the intersection of policy and business.

The Real Economy Blog

The Real Economy Blog was developed to provide timely economic insights about the middle market economy. It is offered as a complement to RSM’s macroeconomic thought leadership, including The Real Economy monthly publication and the proprietary RSM US Middle Market Business Index (MMBI).

The voice of the middle market

Middle market organizations, which make up the “real economy,” are too big to be small and too small to be big. They have distinct challenges and opportunities around resources, labor, technology, innovation, regulation and more.
