Declining Business

Postby cartervj » Wed May 07, 2014 8:26 pm

"U.S. businesses are being destroyed faster than they’re being created

The American economy is less entrepreneurial now than at any point in the last three decades. That's the conclusion of a new study out from the Brookings Institution, which looks at the rates of new business creation and destruction since 1978.

Not only that, but during the most recent three years of the study -- 2009, 2010 and 2011 -- businesses were collapsing faster than they were being formed, a first. Overall, new businesses creation (measured as the share of all businesses less than one year old) declined by about half from 1978 to 2011."

Big business thrives and small business dies when there is big government.

It's just common sense.

When it requires an army to comply with regulations, taxes, etc., only big business can afford that army.

A lot of factors have played into this issues. Obama and his socialist policies are just the Coup de Grace. He and his cronies don't like small business. It is uncontrollable and gives people independence from the Government. It doesn't give big money to the election funds, and tends to lean right in politics. Small business almost always wants less regulation, lower taxes, and smaller governments.

Quite frankly I believe progressive liberals see it as an enemy to be conquered.

It is the embodiment of freedom. Who is more free than a successful small businessman? He controls his economic life unlike an employee. Nobody tells him what to do or when to do it unlike an employee. Who does he answer to? No one. He can at any point just close up shop for any reason unlike a public corporation? Only he decides whether he obeys the law or disregards the law.

Plus the shear numbers of it. If you want to fundamentally transform a nation of 310,000,000+, it is not possible to do it one at a time. You have to lump them in a manageable number of units. Walmart has 2,000,000 employees and when you include dependents, this size results in manageable number of units instead of 200,000 business with 10 employees. You have that an then one nut like the Bundy rancher, look at the monkey ranch that throws in your fundamental transformation. What happens if there are 1,000 of them?

Of course the progressives, modern liberals, leftists, whatever they call themselves will truthfully say they believe in freedom. They just believe in order more. Freedom is chaotic. Small business is chaotic. You cannot have order if you have freedom. It is this desire to impose order that suppresses freedom. Big businesses desire order because if there is chaos, they may not remain a big business forever. Small businesses that wish to become big businesses require chaos. If there is order, they are not going anywhere.

I have said this since I first posted here in the CI forum and have been clear on this about Obama. He wants to destroy America and has been very busy doing so. It is not longer a conspiracy theory. It is bald faced fact in front of everyone's eyes. I am not sure when a powerful and strong economic America became a bad thing with the left. It is clear they are implimenting and working diligently to destroy what is left of the former shell of a great nation.

I'm sorry Scaup. Obama no more wants to destroy HIS country than any of these men did.

They just wanted to fundamentally transform THEIR nation into THEIR vision. The destruction of the nation was just the incompetence of their failed ideas.

Did the Democrats want to destroy Detroit? Nope, just wanted to fundamentally transform it.

Their ego is so huge that they believe they can do anything they want without risk of failure nor does it allow them to be open-minded that it is not THEIR country, but OUR country and we have no right to impose OUR will on the rest of the nation even if it wasn't a recipe for disaster.

I'm sure this guy thinks he can win the next Indianapolis 500 and has no clue how foolish that idea is.

Although, I'd trust the dog driving before I'd trust Obama running the economy.
