If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I was just thinking that just as the government has various programs for people trying to buy a home, they could have similar programs to help people obtain inventory. Inventory loans.
The inventory loans could start with some small amount. After that has been repaid, the borrower would become eligible for larger amounts, thus establishing a reputation as a reliable borrower.
Another thing. Give tax breaks to small businesses that hire people who are on the unemployment rolls.
The government, through the SBA, already guarantees loans.
What I have in mind with inventory loans is simple. Let's say you have started a small business and have invested $20,000 of your own money in inventory. The government could then make an inventory loan of 10 percent of that, or $2000 to you. If you pay that back in a responsible way, you would qualify for $4000. Pay that back you qualify for $8000, etc. I really don't see why that would be a big problem.
