This could be great news for America. One of our ongoing advantages over the rest of the world is our entrepreneurial spirit. The recession, as bad as it is, could be a catalyst to get more people to stop searching for ways to work for someone else and instead take their talents into their own hands. The only stable job is to work for yourself....and on the whole this could be a great way for America to unlock some of that talent which is wasting away inside moribund organizations.
Sometimes it takes someone from outside America to remind us of that.
