I thinkit's harder now to keep alive. So people just take the "easy way out" which is genrally harder in the long run.

There's a lot of potential for class mobilty here, so I think it's still a valid statement.

I think in small-town America it might still be...but I live in LV and wanted to start a book-store, I was turned down several times for a loan...not because I have bad credit (which I don't) but because the chances of a family run store making even or even good are slim to none in Corprate America. I was actually reading an artical on MSNBC about a guy that started a coffee shop and stayed open maybe 1 year because there is just way too much competition. They sell their items at low prices and you as a independent business have to compete with those prices and still try to come out in the green. It is a slim to none chance...thats why the internet businesses are springing up and brick and mortar stores are closing down...lower overhead costs. But the corporations are catching on about the internet and unless you have a good customer base and product you are going to be SOL.
