Challenging the Self-Made Myth
March 8, 2012 § Leave a comment
This is a decent recap of the Elizabeth Warren argument about the supports that business receives because of tax dollars (roads, safety, educated workers, etc.). While the argument is useful, it’s not all myth. Accumulating investment capital, understanding markets, taking risks and all the other skills business people have are also important to economic success. It isn’t useful to recast it entirely as myth. Let’s be a little more nuanced.
