“For these reasons and many more, the administration should reverse course and disclose basic information on businesses that are benefiting from taxpayer relief in the PPP program.”

Accountable.US has repeatedly called on Congress to make the program more accountable and release basic information on all PPP recipients, such as:

  • The demographic breakdown of what entities were women-, veteran-, or minority-owned;
  • The amount of the funds received and on what date;
  • The number of employees at the time of the loan;
  • The amount of the funds that will be forgiven as a grant and how much needs to be repaid; and
  • The terms of repayment, if applicable, including the interest rate charged and length of the loan.

While studying economics, Brendan found himself comfortably falling down the rabbit hole of restaurant work, ultimately opening a consulting business and working as a private wine buyer. On a whim, he moved to China, and in his first week following a triumphant pub quiz victory, he found himself bleeding on the floor based on his arrogance. The same man who put him there offered him a job lecturing for the University of Wales in various sister universities throughout the Middle Kingdom. While primarily lecturing in descriptive and comparative statistics, Brendan simultaneously earned an Msc in Banking and International Finance from the University of Wales-Bangor. He's presently doing something he hates, respecting French people. Well, two, his wife and her mother in the lovely town of Antigua, Guatemala. <i>To contact Brendan or give him an exclusive, please contact him at [email protected]</i>
