Centrally planned entrepreneurs, Could it be the new U.S. Economic Development policy? Or the new oxymoron for the 21st Century?
In a recent blog posting, China’s Chance, by Jonathan Ortmans on February 14, 2011 from The Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship website, it appears that China’s entrepreneurship policy is evolutionary, and need not become revolutionary to over take us. Below is my response to the article. Understand it’s just one man’s opinion.
China's Chance.... to become what Europe?
Is Entrepreneurship OK until the elite or ruling class is full? Will China ever become what the U.S. has been? Or will the U.S. come down to what China can become? Economic opportunity drives social change, and social change will demand more economic opportunity.
China's standard of living will continue to improve, but freedom, the kind that is unique to the U.S. is unattainable without true revolution. Until the Divine Right of Man is realized in China, they can only beat us because we have given it up, and aspire to be Europe, or Japan or..... the rest of the world. It's OK to be unique, a non-team player, that’s the price of leadership and freedom.
Either lead, follow, or stand aside, I guess the U.S. is going to sit this one out.
