There’s plenty of talk and a fair amount of angst swirling around the made for reality TV Fiscal Cliff negotiations.

I was asked several times last week about the impact these talks and falling over the cliff might have on small business. I appeared briefly on the Daily Wrap show on Wall Street Journal Radio and gave my two cents. (Listen to the 5 minute or so segment above.)

As I shared in the interview I believe so much of the talk about the economy is rooted in a bygone era of the Industrial Age. I’m not saying that people won’t be impacted by whatever legislation comes about, change often has to impact someone.

I do find it funny that every time we have a political decision facing the economy we trot out small business owners and put them on display as the backbone of the economy only to run roughshod over this same group when the musical chairs game comes to an end.

Small business owners are a breed that few understand. We are used to assessing the rules we are handed and making something out of nothing. If we fall over this cliff or don’t there will be another hurdle and another.

We just take it as it comes, adjust course and go make money. There’s no need to use us as your argument for continuing the Industrial Age – we’ve moved on to the Information Age and will be just fine. All we ask is that we know what the rules are so we can go about winning the game!
