No entrepreneurs, no jobs!

USA Today reports Fewer people choose to be self-employed. The article by Laura Petrecca reports that the category of "incorporated" self-employed workers in the USA has dropped by 726,000 since August 2008. In the face of a drive to create new jobs, this is an alarming statistic, since entrepreneurs who incorporate account for the overwhelming majority of soon-to-be-hiring firms.

To be plain, if we want to create jobs in this country, it is time to focus on entrepreneurship. Let's see if the powers that be in Washington, DC and in state governments across the nation step up to the plate, abandon political posturing and do what's right for the nation, our people, and our economy!
