  4. 4. Thomas L. Friedman, author of The World Is Flat and Flat, Hot and Crowded and columnist for the New York Times, in an April 3, 2010 opinion editorial said, “to bring down unemployment we need to create a big bushel of new companies - fast. Good-paying jobs don’t come from bailouts. They come from start-ups. And where do start-ups come from? Smart, creative, inspired risk-takers.” Between 1980 and 2005, firms that were less than five years old created virtually all-net new jobs created in the U.S. That was nearly 40 million jobs, according to Robert Litan, director of research at the Kauffman Foundation. Two thirds of all inventions come from entrepreneurs. Saturday, February 20, 16
