Between local, state, and federal regulations placed on everything from who is allowed to braid hair to who can tell you what color to paint a wall and where to place a door and a schooling culture and system that encourages young people to waste away the first 22–30 years of their lives away from the market, the systems placed upon young people today create a climate extremely hostile to entrepreneurship and economic growth.
Where Are All The Young Entrepreneurs?

I just had a spirited discussion with my wife on this topic. Common core places an insane emphasis on ‘doing things the right way’, so much so that if a bright kid uses a clever method of his own (like mental arithmetic), he’ll get marked incorrect despite arriving at the correct answer. What does this teach kids? Don’t question methods, do it the way it’s always been done, get back in line, listen to your boss.
