    I don’t think the SEC has the power to help any small business growth. At this point, this late in the game, small businesses need less taxation and regulations to comply with. There are far too many laws and expenses to start a successful startup nowadays

  2. article writing service says:

    yes i also think so…SEC should make simple there registration facilities.

  3. Agree with the above, there is not a terrific amount that the SEC can do aside from simplifying as much as possible and and cutting taxes on small business. If you give small and medium sized business the chance they will be the engine of your economy.

  4. I agree with penny, there are many laws and many expenses to start a business.
