The Land Of The Entrepreneur No More

21 Oct

The country that was once said to be number one in everything has fallen far from the top. These are rankings of the world economies in categories related to starting a business. America was known as land of entrepreneurs, but no more. We need new business to generate an economic recovery. How are we supposed to be in a recovery showing numbers like this? Tax special note of America being 72 in paying taxes. Our government takes more money from us than almost 40% of all the other countries ranked here. Is that freedom?
