Ofcourse as John Galbraith once said, “Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for Economists”. It’s also sadly well known that the most dangerous words on the English language still remain US President Ronald Reagan’s famous: “I'm from the government and I'm here to help”.
Real entrepreneurs know that a government largely made up of individuals lacking any real experience in founding or running businesses of their own remains a perilous thing. At best, one can hope that whatever change is brought in by the ruling parliament of any country will do no harm. At worst, poor government decisions can seriously undermine your business. Whether by inflicting horrendous bureaucracy and strangling your enterprise under red tape; or through poor economic policy which kills off demand and leaves your would-be customers destitute.
But that’s never been a barrier to enterprise. Those starting for themselves have long understood that at the end of the day, there’s only one man or woman they can truly depend on and that the only way to meet them is to spend a few moments in front of a mirror.
