Entrepreneurial spirit slowing being sucked up in the United States

View Comments

WSJ reports on how the weight of student loans are killing entrepreneurial spirit in the US. I imagine the risk of losing health coverage is also keeping some great people from going alone.

America is the great innovator of the past century and it’s in the best interest of everyone to keep it that way.

  1. I know what it feels like, there is no entrepreneurial spirit left in the UK.. not a good sign

  2. Entrepreneurial spirit slowing being sucked up in the United States .There too many federal and state regulations in the US .The federal government makes up to 3000 regulations per month.If you drive down route 128 by Boston ,the famous technology road of the past ,you will not that the Polaroid building is being torn down.Polaroid was the number company in the US at one time.You will also note that some of the former technology companies are now condos for rent.The current administration doesn’t reward success as in the past.The new paradigm has shifted to Asia and elsewhere.When the largest employer excluding the US government is Wal Mart and the next one is a temp agency you know the US is in trouble.
    Slip,sliding away into the abyss

  3. ‘Entrepreneurial spirit slowing being sucked up in the United States’ Tell that to Elon Musk. :)
