Insight On Business the News Hour

Big News for Small Businesses and the NTPDA

Thanks for clicking through. As we work to get critical information to members of the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association we thought this conversation about getting capital from the Small Business Administration would be very helpful. There have been many changes to the COVID19 Loan Program. Pay close attention to the new guidelines for gaining capitol for your small business. And, second, if you know a person who owns or manages a small business send this link to them. It could make a huge difference.  My guest is Veronica Pugin who is the Senior Advisor in the Office of Capital Access for the Small Business Administration. Here too is your link to the COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program that we talk about. Know there are new guidelines and an easier way in which to apply for business capital.

Boosting the Economy with Velocity

A returning guest is Dr. Chris Draper the managing partner for Troket and the author of Velocity Economics - The Real American Economy. For decades the United States has followed the notion that if you give wealthy people more money they, in turn, will create good paying jobs. For those of you who remember it was called "Trickle Down Economics". Recently President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan that gets substantial dollars into the hands of consumers. That, says Dr. Draper, is exactly what is needed to springboard our economy. Here is our conversation.
