This is by far the most ridiculous article. Where do almost all businesses start? SMALL!
If they do not grow, they are not making money. Start up businesses are the begining, each growing at whatever rate their customers can support them at, in whatever niche they have picked. The reason small businesses are not supported and able to influence the government is because we are not extremely organised. We don't have enormous amounts of moneys or time to waste in lobies or bribes. There is no way a small business or even an entire nation of small businesses, can afford the kind of money and influence massive unions can. The politicians give us lip service and then increase our taxes and regulations.

Only a narrow minded statistician could dream up something like this, he must have some kind of agenda but it not based on long term economics or free enterprise.

@ county mom: You contradict yourself and prove the point of the article. Yes, new businesses start small - but if they are not making money and growing, they are not growing the economy either.

There are a great many organizations devoted to small businesses. If you think they are not organized, you should find one to join.
