no comments yet


Welcome to this week’s small business news weekly roundup!

In this week’s roundup, we’ll discuss saving money on an office space, how smaller retailers can compete with big box stores, and whether there is something magical about small business incentives when it comes to boosting the economy.

First, some other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: YOLO!: The New York Times shares links to articles on the fiscal cliff impact, 12 buzzwords you can expect in 2013, a steady unemployment rate, promising East Coast start-ups to watch this year, the most annoying and hated words and phrases of last year — yes, YOLO and fiscal cliff made the list — and much more.
  • Small Business Must-Reads: Thursday, Jan. 10: From The Wall Street Journal, links to articles on business’ concerns with the cloud, the secrets of America’s happiest companies, Dallas’ corporate support ecosystem, and more.

And now, the rest!

  • There Is Nothing Magical About Small Businesses: Forbes shares a survey showing that economists overwhelmingly agree with the following statement: “The federal government would make the average U.S. citizen better off by using policies that directly focus more on increasing small business growth than growth of economic output overall.” What do you think about this? Do you agree or is there, indeed, something “magical” about small businesses?
