Interest: We supported the idea of tax-free zones on and around State University of New York campuses when Gov. Cuomo first proposed it last year, and still do, even more now that we see what kind of interest it has attracted among businesses. And now that the University at Albany's plan is one of the first eight to be approved in the program, officially called Start - Up NY.

Interest: America is an entrepreneurial nation. If we ever escape from the current moribund economy, it will be because small business owners prospered and created good jobs with decent wages. The large Wall Street and Main Street corporations obviously don't want to help. Big companies really should re-think their strategy. "Crowdfunding" is going to solve the No. 1 obstacle to small business success: Capital. In the process, it may cut off the knees of certain banking industry segments.
