    The survival rate of business puts non-immigrants ahead in helping the economy. According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, While first-generation immigrants were more likely to launch companies, only 5 percent of new immigrants ran businesses that have been around for more than three-and-a-half years, compared to 9 percent for non-immigrants.

    Having the business last longer removes any advantage the 1.7% gives.

    I must congratulate all entrepreneurs, for their willingness to risk it all at this time of the 'great recovery'. to face all of the regulations and backhanded slaps from all of those who think that profit is a dirty word. keep up the good work.

    I suppose that the real news here is that the U.S. is out of the recession. Hum, didn't realize that had happened.

    Entrepreneurs are great blessings to the economy, regardless of race. Thank you, entrepreneurs for exhibiting the drive that makes America exceptional.
