Great post April Atwood, this is what I call the "right article" everything backed up by facts. Let me augment your post with another little fact, that is each year around one million small-medium businesses starts in USA alone, that excludes online start-ups (1), that means 114 businesses each hour. So its not just that they run the world but they also makes it harder for every new entrepreneur each day, each hour!!! imagine competing in that and we all know majority of small businesses are imitative than innovative... just imagine.

It is true that the small business owners, entrepreneurs and capitalists are running the world. The question is: what will happen if they go on strike as described in Ayn Rand's book, Atlas Shrugged?
