The Weekly StandardOvercoming Barriers brings high-level analysis to entrepreneurship....The seven essays are well organized and nicely edited.
— Thomas W. Hazlett
Starting with venture capital access in Silicon Valley during the Internet bubble, the book goes on to question the link between personal wealth and entrepreneurship, investigate how federal tax rates affect small-business creation and destruction, explain the low rate of self-employment among Mexican immigrants, and suggest how pension coverage can be increased in small businesses.
Concluding with an attempt to define what makes an entrepreneur, Overcoming Barriers to Entrepreneurship in the United States argues that policymakers need not create special incentives for entrepreneurs to create new businesses, though there is a great deal they can do to encourage entrepreneurs by removing legal and economic roadblocks to business creation.
