Amenability of finite dimensional norm algebras

Let $(\cal A,\|\cdot\|)$ be a finite dimensional norm algebra (Banach Algebra). Can we say any thing about the amenability of $\cal A$. What if we impose some extra conditions on $\cal A$, say commutativity or the existence of a unit.

Thank you very much.

Every finite-dimensional Banach algebra should be amenable. You can probably find this in the sources link on wikipedia. – Rasmus Oct 6 '12 at 7:27
@ Rasmus: If it is really easy to show could you tell me how should I start a proof. – Mahmood Al Oct 7 '12 at 5:02
@Rasmus: I guess the answer should be more complicated, as for a finite normed space $X$, one may make a Banach algebra by defining $ab=0$ for every $a,b\in X$ and it is not amenable. – Mahmood Al Jun 10 '14 at 2:17
Yes, you are right. It's nice to see that, apparently, you've found the answer to your question. – Rasmus Jun 10 '14 at 7:26

If $A$ is a finite dimensional Banach algebra with a trivial Jacobson radical, then it is amenable. The answer is easily based on this fact that this class of finite dimensional algebras are isomorphic to a product of finitely many $n_i\times n_i$ matrix rings over division rings $D_i$, by Artin–Wedderburn theorem.
The converse is also true. If $A$ is a finite dimensional Banach algebra with a non-trivial radical, it cannot admit any (virtual) diagonal; hence, it cannot be amenable.
