In this week’s small business news roundup, we’ll talk about legislation that could help and hurt small businesses, the latest on jobs, and how to maximize 401(k) profit sharing as well as business losses. Let’s go!

  • House Approves Small Business Bills: The Wall Street Journal reports on two bills approved by the House that are “intended to make it easier for small businesses to access capital, and in turn create more jobs.” Both measures passed nearly unanimously—now we’ll wait to see what happens in the Senate.
  • A bright spot for small businesses: Job creation: From CNNMoney: “Even though widely cited surveys suggest they continue having a gloomy picture of the economy, small businesses are actually hiring considerably more than big companies.” Economist Paul Dales, an economist with Capital Economics insists that “[t]hings are pretty bad but they’re not as bad as some believe.”
