starting new things

Eric has some new thinking going on, targeted at changing our "get a job"-obsessed culture into one in which more people can imagine starting their own businesses.

Sooo important.  For several reasons:

  • new businesses are the US's main new-job engine,

  • at the current rate of job creation, we will all be old before the country is back to pre-crisis levels,

  • race plays into this -- black-owned businesses vanished overnight in the civil rights era,

  • local businesses are better at keeping the money in the community instead of sending it all to WalMart headquarters,

  • many virtually unemployable people (e.g., felons) can nonetheless support themselves and contribute

  • there is this little idea of Right work, or Call, or whatever . . . =)


And btw, this is one more reason universal healthcare is important.  It frees us to start our own businesses, support ourselves, build the economy, build our communities, do what we are meant to do.
