It may compel Congress to push some legislation through.

U.S. lawmakers and other policy makers could be prompted to protect American small business in the wake of the U.K.’s decision to leave the Eureopean Union, as Business News Daily writes. For one, the article says, it could lead Congress to do away with some of the regulations that restrict small businesses.

As Richard Williams, director for the regulatory studies program at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, told the media outlet: “What it means for small businesses is that there is likely to be some ripples across the pond. Right now there are 50 to 60 regulatory reform bills in Congress that are essentially stalled. I think over the next few months we will hear a lot more about how regulations hurt small businesses and perhaps put pressure on Congress to act.”

The article also cites analysts who say that Europe could fall back into recession, which may keep the Federal Reserve from raising interest rates. The Fed also offered this statement regarding instability in global financial markets: “The Federal Reserve is prepared to provide dollar liquidity through its existing swap lines with central banks, as necessary, to address pressures in global funding markets, which could have adverse implications for the U.S. economy.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
