Our take: According to a Jim Clifton, the CEO of Gallup, "The will of the world is first and foremost to have a good job." But, what is the right mix of rules and regulations that create the atmosphere for successful businesses to start and thrive? In an article for Forbes, Mfonobong Nsehe comments on the U.N.'s recent resolution on entrepreneurship.
"Last month the Israeli delegation sponsored a UN resolution on entrepreneurship, the first UN resolution ever devoted to entrepreneurship. It's about time! For decades now many people have acknowledged that most job creation comes from the growth of small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs), and of course all SMEs were first entrepreneurial start-ups.
"Jim Clifton, the CEO of Gallup, summarizes the major finding of the first Gallup world poll, taken in 2007: 'From all Gallup's data, which have been gathered from asking the whole world questions on virtually everything, the most profound finding is this: The primary will of the world is no longer about peace or freedom or even democracy; it is not about having a family, and it is neither about God nor about owning a home or land. The will of the world is first and foremost to have a good job.'
"It is that simple: People everywhere want jobs."
