Trying to find REAL problems with the economy isnt' hard. I don't know why our Leadership is stuck on tax voodoo and class warfare... Coupla charts to ponder.. 2006 to 2009 number IPOs.. Number of IPOs and returns 1960 to 2000 So what happens when MEGA Multi-Nat Corps keep getting bigger from M & A and there are no younger, more consumer-friendly, more innovative punks to knock them off? Maybe a WEALTH GAP? Maybe stagnant Capital? Maybe a job resistant "recovery"??? Could it be that GOVT has pushed the barriers to entry a little too high? That 6 guys with a great idea need an ARMY of compliance folks to start-up? Could it be that we've just chickened out after the DotCom bubble? Appears from THOSE numbers -- that the Captain has given up the ship -- don't it??
