Inside Straight

One of the many casualties of punditry and politics, especially when it comes to statements about business, the economy and how they actually work in the real world, is any sense of history. Wild statements get made with little actual data to back them up and the "truth" of "what happened when" is sacrificed on the alter of making a political case. "Inside Straight's" only mission is to debunk the wild political statements all sides of the aisle make on a regular basis, when it comes to issues that affect - and reflect - business.

Debbie Kwiatoski has been writing about economy and what really makes small business work for the past thirty years. She also served ten years as the economic development director of an Upstate New York college town and tourism destination, where the economic base was almost entirely driven by small Main Street businesses. For seven years, she was the managing editor of the Hudson Valley Business Journal and has now taken that publication online as "Hudson Valley Business Digital."
