Why Can't Chuck Or Anyone Get Their Business Off the Ground?

How can Americans create private sector jobs?

The solution to America's jobs problem lies not with budget-busting federally mandated "stimulus" programs.

Instead, what is needed are specific reforms that wouldn't cost taxpayers, would create a broader tax base for cash-strapped cities and states, and would provide opportunity for millions of Americans who worry where their next paycheck is coming from.

As demonstrated by a series of eight new reports issued in October 2010 by the Virginia-based Institute for Justice, one of the principal obstacles to creating new jobs and entrepreneurial activity in cities across the country is the complex maze of regulations cities and states impose on small businesses. IJ's "city study" reports are filled with real-world examples of specific restrictions that often make it impossible for entrepreneurs to create jobs for themselves, let alone for others.

Chip Mellor, the president and general counsel of the Institute for Justice, said, "If the nation is looking to the federal government to create jobs in America, it is looking in the wrong place. If we want to grow our economy, we must remove government-imposed barriers to honest enterprise at the city and state levels. Remove those barriers, and you will see a return to the optimism and opportunity that are hallmarks of the American Dream."

IJ's eight reports document how irrational and anti-competitive regulations block entrepreneurship. More often than not, these government-imposed restrictions on economic liberty are put in place at the behest of existing businesses that are not shy about using government force to keep out competition. The Institute for Justice's city studies examine regulations imposed on a wide range of occupations in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Newark, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C.

Wow! This video says it all and should be mandatory for students to watch in all schools. All adults need to see this also. 100% true and why government IS the problem despite what Bill Clinton says.

My husband makes rustic home decor. He can only do it as a hobby, small scale because of all the nonsense. It would sure be nice if someone supported us like we support the government & regulations, I don't even want to get started on those. State of California paid us for a service but the cost of the regulations exceeded what they paid by almost 50%. Couldn't continue like that.

The stupidity is what gets me, like Gibson, organic farms, Jack Daniels...easy to see where the jobs went. Even Gibson says they may have to move their plants to another country.

What has happened to the USA?

Nice video spelling out what has gone wrong with this country. I saw something on Fox that said back in the late 1700's there were only about 20 Federal laws, now there are thousands and people can't even keep up with them all.
