Startup, small business, new ideas - those are what will drive the economy, not support the an old, possibly outdated economic model. Small businesses, as a group, provide much needed support to any community - in fact, small towns that have a "corporation" presence, are usually worse off than those that have a strong, diverse small business community. The schools are better, the parks are better, the overall community has a completely different feel. You may or may see the affects in a large city, but you can see it in a small town.
I believe the billions spent to support the BIG financial institutions was money poorly invested by our government. The same companies that almost cratered us, are the ones that got billions - doesn't seem right. Those same billions could have put money right back into a thousands of small business, and incubated thousands of new idea - and created new jobs.
That's what I believe and that's what I'm going to start writing about. Entrepreneurship.
