Get started: Banks fulfilling a small business promise, Romney charting aggresive new course

Our daily blend of the latest news, trends and tips for the small business community.

What’s going ‘on’:

Banks fulfilling a small business promise: One year after pledging to increase lending to small firms in underserved communities by $20 billion over the next three years, the Small Business Administration and 13 major banks are already more than halfway to their goal.

Federal Reserve changing course: Under Ben Bernanke’s watch, the Federal Reserve has taken a more direct, forceful and out-in-the-open approach to bolstering the economy — starkly different than the reclusive role the central bank has played for many years.

Keep an eye ‘on’:

Romney goes on offense: Hoping to right the ship with a more aggressive approach, Mitt Romney has announced he will spend more time directly addressing voters and less time raising campaign funds in the final month and a half of the election.
