Last week, we asked: Has the S&P decision to downgrade the U.S. credit rating affected your business?

- Yes, in a negative way — 28.89%
- Yes, in a positive way — 2.22%
It’s good to know that the majority of businesses have not been negatively affected by the nation’s credit downgrade. But the fact that nearly 30% have should send the message that our country’s financial situation is cause for concern.
While each of us is entitled to our respective political opinions, one thing is for certain — it’s important to pay attention to what’s happening in government and in the financial markets. Know the issues and develop your own opinions.
