It is time for this nation, to shake off the shackles of economic fear and focus once again on the inventiveness, innovation and entrepreneurism, that defines America for the world. We must look beyond the current economic malaise of can not and join in unison as the nation that can do.
It is time for America’s confidence in itself and its ability, to overcome economic ills and plagues, to return to its proper place in our national psyche. This is the land of entrepreneurism. The nation that is the economic model for the world. The confidence crisis that afflicts our markets and has humbled even the wealthiest among us will be overcome.
The economic engine that is America, has evolved over time, as individuals who posses great aspirations and dreams, choose to keep moving forward, through the wall of failure to the finish line of success. We may falter at times as a nation and as individuals but in our failings, we progress and move forward. It is who we are as a nation and what the world expects us to be.
We are at times envied and at times despised. Like us or hate us we are a nation, capable of creating enormous value and unsurpassed wealth. In this current financial and economic crisis we need to shout in glory across this nation that we will slay the economic beast of recession and raise the mighty knights of entrepreneurism to reign glorious in our economy again.
Congress and President Barack Obama, should affirm their belief in the American way, by apportioning a percentage of the much debated economic stimulus package to create the United State Office Of Entrepreneurship. As Ceo4aday expressed, in a previous article,a well endowed Office Of Entrepreneurship could provide venture capital to assist in startups for qualified entrepreneurs. At an appropriate point in time, the entrepreneur would have the opportunity to purchase the shares the government had acquired at an agreed upon valuation.
As venture capital and commercial loans have tightened during the financial crisis and we see the fragility of a system that has eroded our confidence, the Office of Entrepreneurship would be an economic beacon that would provide stimulus to feed the innovation that is American entrepreneurism.
