Unleash the Entrepreneurs

Saturday’s St. Paul Pioneer Press has an outstanding opinion piece which discusses the important role which entrepreneurs play in spurring on an economic recovery.  The article, written by Arnold Kling, a member of the Mercatus Center’s Financial Markets Working Group at George Mason University, and Nick Schulz, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, goes on to argue that the government’s attempts to spur on recovery are doomed to failure, and that policy makers should instead be focusing on taking the necessary steps to unleash the power of entrepreneurs. 

I have been telling people for months now that entrepreneurs and microbusinesses are the key to America’s economic recovery, and this article is the most artiiculate one I’ve seen in describing what needs to happen from a government perspective to encourage these efforts.
