The $5.8 billion could have been spent on:
116,000
Businesses receiving the maximum number of microloans
from the small business administration.
139,178
People being hired.
This would be the full staff of at least:
275
"Small"
Businesses.
193,333
Small businesses being started from
scratch. It would be equal to
first-round funding for:
58,000
GOOGLES
23,200
APPLES
11,600
FACEBOOKS
446,153
Microloans from the small business administration.
That would
help more than
80%
of the U.S. businesses
that will be created
next year.
