Blog Resource
Summary:

Argentina has been in the news lately for its expropriation of a Spanish oil company and other strong regulatory interference, such as price and import controls. With this image reflected in the media, we decided to check back on activity that Argentine entrepreneurs and the organizations that support them are carrying out to sustain and promote entrepreneurship.

This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Blog Resource
Summary:

As we anticipated last week—well, us and pretty much everyone else who tracks the comings-and-goings of Congress—the House and Senate adjourned for a six-week recess so that they could focus on campaigning ahead of the general election in November. Somewhat comically (and predictably), Democrats called on the GOP majority in the House to postpone the recess while Republicans similarly chided the Democratic majority in the Senate – meanwhile, the media threw up its hands at both. The departure is the earliest pre-election recess since John F. Kennedy faced-off with Richard Nixon in 1960.

A Rousing Welcome for Startups in Rio
Jonathan Ortmans
9/17/2012
Blog Resource
Summary:

I recently returned from Brazil, the world’s sixth largest economy, where President Dilma Rousseff, a former Marxist revolutionary, is using pro-growth incentives such as lower interest rates, proposed tax cuts and infrastructure investment to fuel her nation’s quest for sustained economic growth and help more Brazilians stand on their own two feet. That Rio will host the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in March 2013 is obviously important for Brazilians. It might be more important for the rest of world.

Economic Confidence Dips Among Entrepreneurs

Blog Resource
Summary:

The latest Kauffman/LegalZoom Startup Confidence Index points to a continuing decline in expectations for the U.S. economy. Almost 40 percent of startup owners believe the economy will deteriorate over the next 12 months, an increase from 36 percent in the second-quarter survey and 31 percent in the first-quarter. Not surprisingly, the number of entrepreneurs who were “somewhat confident” in future profitability dipped as well.

Blog Resource
Summary:

Earlier this year, we followed the progress of the JOBS (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) Act as an example of how business should get done in Washington, DC. Most of the attention has been—and continues to be— focused on crowdfunding and how it can help startups and small businesses raise capital to launch and grow their businesses.

Summary:

The recent return of Congressional leaders from a 5-week recess won’t be long-lived. With the heated presidential campaign in full-swing, members are focusing their current efforts in Washington on campaign-related events—and trying to figure out how soon they can escape back to their home states and districts to focus on campaigning there. That escape may come as soon as the end of this week. In the meantime, there are a number of hearings that may be of interest to our readers.
