SBA’s “Small Business Economy” Report Finds Room for Optimism

The Small Business Administration (SBA) Office of Advocacy recently released the 2010 edition of “The Small Business Economy,” which reviews the overall economic environment for small businesses through 2009. While the report outlines a challenging economic environment, there are also signs of improvement toward small-business growth. The report includes examples of small-business contributions to job creation and innovation; ongoing challenges to the small-business economy, such as health care and pension coverage; and insight into emerging opportunities for small-business owners. Also included in SBA’s analysis is the financial landscape for small business, including access to credit, financing and capital investment. For a copy of SBA’s report, click here.
