The Kauffman Foundation offers a video of Tyler Cowen talking about blogging economics and other topics. Cowen wraps up with comments on current economic conditions in the United States:
If there is one point I could get through about the mess we’re in, it’s that even if you think that the government needs to do something proactive, that is a holding action. Recovery is about entrepreneurship.
Coincidentally, Kauffman Foundation president Carl Schramm discusses entrepreneurship and the economy in a profile appearing in the WSJ over the weekend, leading with this quote about “companies too big to fail”:
Carl Schramm doesn’t buy the idea that some businesses are “too big to fail.” That notion, says the president of the Kansas City-based Kauffman Foundation, only creates obstacles for entrepreneurs. Instead, he sees the failure of big companies as the “moment when 1,000 flowers can bloom.”
