Kevin O'Leary's: Small Businesses Left Behind by Bidenomics

In a recent discourse on American economic policies, "Shark Tank" investor and prominent entrepreneur Kevin O'Leary vocalized his robust criticism of President Joe Biden's strategy for economic growth, commonly known as Bidenomics.

O'Leary expressed particular concern that this strategy is neglecting the interests of small businesses in favor of large corporations, creating an environment that he sees as detrimental to entrepreneurial growth and economic vitality.

Bidenomics: A Short-Sighted Strategy?

"President Biden's focus seems entirely concentrated on the big players," O'Leary claimed in an interview with Fox Business. "We're overlooking a critical part of the economy - small businesses.

These businesses need our undivided attention and all the resources we can muster to ensure their survival, especially their access to capital." O'Leary's apprehensions mirror those of many small business operators who report difficulty in accessing necessary funds for growth.

He further emphasizes that businesses employing between five and 500 people find it particularly challenging to raise capital, a situation he deems to be a result of poor economic policy. "Bidenomics appears not to extend its benefits to small businesses, which constitute around 60% of our economy," O'Leary argued.

"Every day, their ability to secure capital diminishes. It's crucial that we rally to ensure they have this access. The survival of America's small businesses is at stake!"

Consequences of Rising Interest Rates

The investor also expressed concern about the impact of increasing interest rates on small businesses.

These hikes, he argues, make borrowing more expensive, thereby intensifying the struggle to finance business operations and stunting economic growth from the ground up. President Biden's economic philosophy, articulated in his own words, seeks to "rebuild our economy from the middle out and the bottom up, not the top down." Yet, O'Leary asserts that this vision does not reconcile with the reality facing small businesses today, suggesting that the path to true economic resilience lies in fostering the success of businesses of all sizes, not just the industry titans.

As this debate continues to unfold, it remains to be seen whether the current administration will take heed of O'Leary's concerns and those of other economic commentators who echo his sentiments. Ultimately, the future of America's economy - and the small businesses that form its backbone - hangs in the balance.
