Survey says Chicago lagging in small business

Being a small business owner can be both fruitful and rewarding, but if that business is located in the city of Chicago, it may not necessarily be the case. A new survey done by Thumbtack, in partnership with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, shows that Chicago received a D+ in overall friendliness to small businesses. So not only is the city not nice, but Chicago business owners feel pessimistic about the local economy. We talk with Jon Lieber, Chief Economist of Thumbtack, about why this study is so alarming and what it means for our business climate. Photo: Flickr/rrenzoo
