It’s that time of the month again, and I am scouring the Internet for signs of business statewide and locally. There is a lot on cronyism, but I am looking for capitalist ventures. Less than halfway to my quota, the big news stories in the state appear to be four large layoffs that either will or could affect Charlotte. Out west, we have a homeless shelter that has set up a day labor program. Is this depressing or what? In Asheville, we’re becoming a town of subsidized beer tasting rooms.
