This is the article Nick and I presented this past Friday. Some of the discussion questions we asked were about what to do if you find that the market you initially entered has suddenly changed? What if the market is something you don't want to be a part of but you still need to make a living do you do it anyway?

Obama's effort to help small businesses with tax cuts and making it easier for businesses to take out loans. Mixed reviews on the effectiveness of this bill- will it help most businesses? help enable businesses to hire new employees and take out loans but not secure their businesses or the industry they are in. Is it effective?

I guess this is similar to the article Dylan posted.

How do you manage separating family issues from the daily operations of the business?

These are two articles Tim and I used for our family business news article and presentation. The older one describes the fued between the Ambani brothers. The recent article talks of the end of their dispute. Based on the information we have provided the class, What types of things could the Reliance Group have done to resolve these disputes? Do you think that these conflicts were inevitable, considering so much worth was involved? Do you think that more conflicts will arise, despite their current truce?

I watched Obama's most recent speech on reducing the country's debt deficit.  One of the things that he spoke about was increasing the tax rate for the wealthy, and mentioned a "millionaires tax" (one person with an income over a million dollars will pay a higher tax rate).  When many small business file their taxes under "personal", I feel that this tax will actually have a negative effect on American small businesses, forcing them to pay higher taxes.
