It's been a while since i've been active on the IC. Needless to say, this used to be a forum that I could count on for some intellectual and stimulating discussion. I anticipate that the trend has persisted.
To the discussion:
Considering the current plight of the average young person is one of the struggle to find a decent paying job or being stuck in a profession that one hates, what impedes one from going toward the route of self employment?
Capital is the easy answer. Does not take much thought to come up with that one. But there are means by which one could go about acquiring capital. So think a little deeper. Is it fear, comfort, complacency or something else?
