Small-business owners in the United States are most likely to say complying with government regulations (22%) is the most important problem facing them today, followed by consumer confidence in the economy (15%) and lack of consumer demand (12%).As the Estonian Economics Minister was quoted as saying in this article in the German magazine Spiegel:
Rounding out small-business owners' top five problems in the Oct. 3-6 Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index poll is lack of credit at 10% and poor leadership by government and the president at 9%.
If all you do is administer, nothing comes of it. The state must clear the way for those who want to achieve something. That's the function of the state.You don't clear the way by adding more regulatory hurdles. It's sad that in this country that's considered a "conservative" viewpoint.
