Small Business Research Summary

This study examines the impacts on small business of the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The scope of the study was also unable to capture the macroeconomic effects and the downstream supply chain impact of the oil spill and drilling moratorium.
