    More Businesses Shutting Down than Starting Up

    There is no way to give this a positive spin, obama's socialist policies are killing our economy.

    "The American economy is less entrepreneurial now than at any point in the last three decades. That's the conclusion of a new study out from the Brookings Institution, which looks at the rates of new business creation and destruction since 1978.

    Not only that, but during the most recent three years of the study -- 2009, 2010 and 2011 -- businesses were collapsing faster than they were being formed, a first. Overall, new businesses creation (measured as the share of all businesses less than one year old) declined by about half from 1978 to 2011."
    Just going out on a limb here, but perhaps an additional $73 billion in government regulations each year have something to do with it? Not to mention the 400-plus employers that have cut hours or positions because of Obamacare—or the overall hostile business climate in which businesses are reminded they didn’t achieve anything on their own.

    So much for jobs being “saved or created.”

    Well.....they didn't build those businesses anyway, remember?

    I guess none of them were those shovel ready jobs we heard so much about.

    The Liberal Agenda is working as planned.

    I did not know that Obama has been president for the last thirty years

    From the article
    In fact, we show that dynamism has declined in all fifty states and in all but a handful of the more than three hundred and sixty U.S. metropolitan areas during the last three decades.

    2009, 2010, and 2011? Hmm, I wonder if anything happened in 2008 that would explain this

    And what year is it now?

    A more favorable business climate for large corporations is a major factor. Financing to investment to supply to distribution to government support and assistance more often favor large corporations.

    Those were the most recent three years of the study but it seems things are getting even worse to me since then. Even at that though things got worse in obama's first term not better and that is documented.

    The Obama administration's policies are clearly worse then useless (IMO).

    But I highly doubt things would be much better under the Reps.

    Remember, it was Bush that ramped up the insane 'low income housing policy' into high gear (apparently it was a huge priority for him) which led to the Great Recession. Sure, everyone went along with it...but ramping it up was his baby.
    Plus, under his administration, a bunch of ridiculous policies were enacted...like TARP, bailing out GM and Chrysler, approving Bernanke as Fed Chair (and supporting his idiotic policies), agreeing to the Fed to essentially buy AIG, 'too big to fail' and he ran one huge deficit after another which culminated in the massive one he posted in his last FY in office.
    And most/all of these policies he received support from the Reps on.

    Face it, both parties at the top are utterly clueless as to how to properly run an economy...even today.

    IMO, the Reps and the Dems are just two faces of the same political beast.

    Bernanke....now there is a footnote in history I would prefer to forget.
