“[W]e can either have an economy that puts the private citizen at the center — the consumer, the worker, the entrepreneur — and lets each individual be the judge of what to buy or sell, where to work, where to invest, and what to create. Or we can put the government at the center of the economy and let the bureaucrats and politicians call the balls and strikes and decide who’s out of business, or who will get the big contract and be home free.” –Ronald Reagan

    Really good quote, and I’m afraid we watched it happening when we were desperately trying to run our private surgery practice and found ourselves pitted against an alliance between big government and big health care corporations. It led to two decades of chronic stress, a dwindling profit margin, and an ever growing number of rules imposed both by big government an big business. I believe in small businesses, the problem is all too often the laws that are advantageous to the government and large corporations are hell for the small family run businesses. How many politicians have ever run a successful business of their own?

    In so many ways, the ennui of the younger generations –seems in part caused by this assumption that “someone” either big business or big government is going to run everything for them. And they don’t even know how in step the two can be. There are times when I think –they just don’t have the gumption to start anything on their own. To take the risks many of us took. But once in awhile I am proven wrong. I hope in the next ten years, I am proven wrong over & over again.
