Editor's Note
This week in Small Business News we feature a summary of a recent Ernst & Young Webcast that focused on ways in which entrepreneurs can make their way through the current financial downturn. The message? There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Meanwhile, the election approaches. Are you curious about exactly where the candidates stand on the issues? The Tax Foundation has a nice comparison page that shows where each candidate stands on the major tax issues. You just check the candidate names that interest you, click a button, and get instant results.

Also, a recent AccountingWEB article pointed readers to a Web site where they could compare the health proposals of the two major presidential candidates. See Presidential candidates present positions on key health care issues for more information.
