Reality about business

I want to thank the Times Republican for letting writers like Laura Hollis put their findings in our local paper. Her timely article on “A Business Lesson for Socialists” was very interesting. She said the anti-business thoughts that socialists have made her want to pull her hair out.

She said many things, but I want to point out a few that caught my eye. The U.S. has about 28 million business firms. Eighty percent of these employ no one but the owner(s). Of the remaining seven million, the vast majority employs fewer than 20 people. Laura is an expert on entrepreneurs and works for Notre Dame University. You need to Google her. She is what America is about.

I see where Iowa is not only the No. 1 state to be in, but No. 2 with the lowest unemployment rate in the nation. I love living in this state.
