Election year 2016 is anything but predictable. However, the economic numbers for the first half of 2016 are in, and they are not good. Sounding very similar as to the past nine years, the U.S. economy grew ‘less than forecast’ to an abysmal 1.2%. Just for comparison, a steady economy needs between 3-4% GDP just to stay even with population. Anything above 4% can be considered real growth.

The cards have their downsides, too, including the risk of running up unpaid debt — for which the small-business owner is likely personally liable. But for quick, convenient access to capital, they’re hard to beat.
