World Entrepreneurship 2006 – 2012

This is not a good statistic. This is the latest data from the OECD. Note that this is a relative statistical construct (2006=100). While 2006 was not a bad year in the U.S., relative to other countries we are flatlining. In France start-up rates were boosted in 2009 and 2010 by new legislation supporting auto-entrepreneurs. The U.S., Germany, and Denmark are trending down.

    Never fear, someone will just ‘paper it over’ and it will all be A-Ok.

    What’s that? Paul Krugman to chair the Fed one day?

    See…. Everything will be rights as rain.

    Let’s see…..1% have the money to be entrepreneurial but don’t need to and 99% are living paycheck to paycheck. Gee…I wonder why the good ol’ USSA is flatlining? The last time I looked, France had no money either, so I doubt their entrepreneurs are very viable. But, it makes the graph look pretty!
