    Many expect that Small Businesses will experience financial distress. Even in a good economy there are the stresses of Small Business Failure. Certainly, in a bad economy these stresses are exacerbated. My concern is that there is another stress that millions of small business owners will experience.

    A recent National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE) survey, which I authored, underscored the fact that millions of Self-Employed Small Business owners, employing from 1-10 employees, will be at-risk of default on their Alt-A , Option ARMs , Interest-Only, etc. These are referred to as the “Toxic” Mortgages that experts expect to “Reset” to higher monthly payments beginning in 2009 and continuing through 2012. This is considered the 2nd “Tsunami” Wave of Foreclosures that will not only take these small businesses, but will also result in Job Loss for their employees. See the NASE Survey at this link:


    Congress is now addressing Economic Stimulus legislation. Washington should recognize that these Self-Employed Small Business owners (16.2 Million according to the SBA in 2007) hold the key to a solution. By addressing these small business owners, we may be able to save jobs. “JOB RETENTION IS AS IMPORTANT AS JOB CREATION”.
