New rules to strengthen banks' capital requirements for banks is good for the economy in the long run, due to a strong economy can not function without a healthy banking system. But as useful as this sector is essential for the long term, it will place even more pressure on small businesses.

Thus lack of credit (read lack of funds for growth, recruitment, etc.) will continue to hamper small businesses in the future.
