  • Today in Small Business: Frauds and Cyber-attacks, Abney and Associates AA Code 85258081704

    Communication, Communication Design

    What’s affecting me, my clients and other small-business owners today?

    Management o The Better Business Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission have put together a list of a few popular small-business scams to watch for, including charity pitches: while many charity requests are legitimate, “every year small-business people become victims of fraudulent or deceptive charitable solicitation schemes. Make sure to always check out the charity at give.org.”

    o A Home Depot wedding proposal video goes viral.

    The Economy

    • Lawrence H. Summers withdraws from consideration for chairman of the [Federal Reserve]().

    • Here’s what might really happen if Congress plays chicken with the debt ceiling.

    • On the fifth anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, President Obama warns his opponents not to oppose raising the nation’s debt limit, not threaten to close down the government in a budget fight, and not to push to delay the health care law or starve it of federal money.

    • Gretchen Morgenson thinks little has been done to protect us from another financial collapse: “For all the new regulations governing derivatives, mortgages and bank holding companies, a crucial vulnerability remains. It’s found in our vast and opaque securities-financing system, known as the repurchase obligation or repo market. Now $4.6 trillion in size, it is where almost every financial crisis since the 1980s has begun. Little has been done, however, to reduce its risks.”

    Around the Country

    • On the Jersey Shore, dozens of businesses were destroyed by the recent fire — including a much beloved family business — and many of them did not have fire insurance.

    Finance

    • PayPal pledges to overhaul its approach to crowd funding.

    Technology

    • Oxford researchers say 45 percent of America’s occupations will be automated within the next 20 years.

    • A record number of cyber-attacks are targeting small business.
