29. Translate the following dialogue into Russian. A and В - small-business analysts.

A: I believe the government got it wrong when it switched its small-firms policy from promoting start- ups to encouraging business growth.

B: Indeed. Many small-firm owner-managers might have thought: 'Actually, I'm quite happy with the way it is. It's comfortable.'

A: Or 'Yes, we could take on a couple of staff, but that's not a huge amount of difference.'

B: Or something like: 'I think it is the ideal size because you can keep an eye on if

A: They might have suggested 'You can make reasonable money and you know mat if it does get a bit quieter, you can, unfortunately, lay some people off and still do okay.'

B: Anyway, mere's a study made by Kingston University academics for the Financial Management of Small Firms and published by the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants (ACCA).

A: Do you think it suggests anything interesting or new?

B: Subtitled An Alternative Perspective, it suggests, the entrepreneurs that we've quoted above are the rule, not the exception.

A: Absolutely. Survival, not growth, drives the financial management strategies of most small firms.

B: Much small-business policy is based on the assumption that growth should be the rime objective of the financial management strategies

75

of small-business owners. But the evidence is that survival and

stability are the major goals of owner-managers. A: Exactly. For most of the entrepreneurs, growth beyond a certain

limit meant nothing but trouble - the hassle1 of finding new

premises, more administration and the need to hire middle

management B: Behind and beyond these issues, it posed one overwhelming threat:

loss of control - over product quality, over the costs of the business,

over, potentially, the owner's own fete. A: It seems as if many owner-managers would like to expand - they

just want to keep growth within manageable limits where the

business remains familiar. B: One owner-manager said the optimism size for his business,

which had a single-figure workforce, was 16 people because that's

how many can work comfortably in his shop without felling over

each other. A: The entrepreneurs' grasp of a business basic - that cash is king - is

also encouraging.

B: Well, cash-flow indicators are crucial. A: As I noticed, the entrepreneurs tend to see business as a vocation

rather than a vehicle for enrichment. One owner-manager said:

'Maybe I'm stupid, I don't know. To do a job that you enjoy doing

and to be satisfied in your job is more important to me than

money.'
