Bloomberg:

President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi questioned each other’s mental faculties, showcasing increasing partisan tensions as Election Day looms.

“The president is, shall we say, in an altered state right now, so I don’t know how to answer for his behavior.,” Pelosi said in an interview on Bloomberg Television Thursday.

The Democratic leader also called Trump’s changing positions this week on whether to let his administration conduct talks on fiscal stimulus “strange.” Trump pulled his team from negotiations Tuesday, prompting Pelosi to suggest to colleagues that day that Trump’s thinking might have been affected by the steroids he’s taken to battle his Covid-19, Bloomberg has reported.

How Capital One is using tech to improve the online shopping experience

Presented by Capital One


Over the last six months, the way in which consumers have purchased goods has changed tremendously. Many traditional retail establishments have closed their doors, encouraging shoppers to take their business online.

Just how much has online shopping increased in recent months? In the COVID-19 era, ecommerce levels are tracking above average holiday spending with $93.9 billion extra spent online since March, compared to projections from the beginning of the year. In conjunction with this significant increase, online shopping fraud has also spiked, resulting in a staggering $12.67M in losses since January, according to the FTC. These findings beg the question: How can consumers protect themselves against scams in an increasingly ecommerce world?

By building and investing in digital tools like Eno and Capital One Shopping, Capital One is creating a digital banking experience that provides customers with the tools and resources they need to have confidence

An entrepreneurial spirit has been stirring in the capital region as the economic wreckage of the pandemic gives way to new small businesses and now a flea market in Hartford to showcase them.

Most weekends since early September vendors from around the region have lined a little-used parking lot at Market and Trumbull streets downtown that’s now the site of the Capital Flea Market. Organized by Evenlyn Black, a 26-year-old mother of two with her own small business, the market is giving sellers much-needed exposure and shoppers a rare opportunity to browse and mingle outside.

Small Business Lenders Should Seek New Ways To Keep Capital Flowing

I am the SVP of Partner & Lender Strategy at Lendio, the largest marketplace for small business financing.

In early March, when the word “coronavirus” was still a whisper in the halls of Congress, I was returning from a business development meeting in California to pitch a prospective partner. 

With a new year and new goals fresh in our minds, it seemed almost impossible that a black swan event would change the face of business lending in just a few weeks’ time. Who could have predicted the extent of the crisis beginning to unfold?

Even for companies like mine, which already had a blueprint in place for operating during an economic downturn, this was a shock to the system. We’ve learned a few things since then, and while as an industry we remain cautious, we see this as an opportunity to improve our systems and remain agile.
