Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
LTEs expressing the personal impacts current US financial policies, such as you describe, by small business owners would be useful in de-legitimizing the popular perception of these policies. Small business owners may have been in the habit of siding with big business on political issues out of aspirational beliefs. I doubt that lots of them can now realistically aspire to the status of an oligarch, as they are concerned about bankruptcy. They need to reflect on how their feet came to be encased in concrete and by whom.
