“The USA may aptly be described as the cradle of the free enterprise system. We are the most affluent country in the world today for two simple reasons: one, the men and women who have demonstrated the willingness to organize, operate and assume risk for a business venture, the classic entrepreneur; and two, the opportunity to live in a country that not only supports but encourages and respects entrepreneurship in every individual willing to do so.”
