Season's Greetings

Pushing the Envelope wishes our readers a joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year. We will take a break this week, but we encourage you to read over the past year’s blogs and let us know what you think on any of the wide range of topics we blogged on in 2018.

We post comments as they come in, even if you comment on a blog that ran a few months ago. We often see older blogs getting new comments and generating a new thread of discussion, which helps provide a current outlook on past work. These comments can serve to inform future work.

 

Risk and Reward

You don’t concentrate on risks, you concentrate on rewards, said aviation hero Chuck Yeager, who knew a thing or two about risks.

The government, on the other hand, is not inherently risk-oriented. You see this especially when it comes to investing employees’ retirement funds. We explored this issue in a whitepaper last year.

 

Microbusinesses, Macro Impact

A microbusiness is just what its name implies. Very small. As in nine employees or less. But don’t let size fool you — microbusinesses are essential to the U.S. economy, making up roughly 75 percent of private businesses.

You can find microbusinesses in agriculture, law, and online marketplaces. They have a range of needs, some common to all businesses but some quite unique. For example, time and resources are in tight supply for microbusinesses.
