With the election of Donald Trump as President, small businesses now have a better understanding of the future of America. Although the picture is clearly, small firms are still split in regards to investing in their future. "According to a flash poll of more than 380 owners of small firms" by Vistage Worldwide Inc. 49% of small businesses feel that a Donald Trump presidency will be better for the economy moving forward. While about 20% of those polled said they would increase capital investments due to the election outcome, the same number said they would decrease expenditures.
Like individuals, small businesses are split as they await President Trump’s policies. Although many of his stances, particularly on tax cuts for businesses, have been positive, there is still no clear solution to the rising costs of Obamacare.
