Business and Finance

America needs a strong and vibrant economy that is working for everyone. Instead, our government and political candidates constantly blast all corporations and banks, mutual funds and Wall Street, high income and successful entrepreneurs. Small businesses are not treated much better. They face huge commercial rent increases, excessive taxes and fines, unscrupulous inspectors from city and state agencies, red tape, high utilities bills and water tariffs.

We need to support all job creators, giving them tax incentives and public praise. We should encourage innovation and entrepreneurship, responsible business practices and community involvement - whether we are talking about large bank or Mom-and-Pop florist shop. In this section, you will read stories about businesses, their success and struggle, new strategies and products, problems and services.
