Spot on Mr. Quimby. At the very basic level, try starting and running a business without enforceable contracts. We have an independent, accessible, and affordable court system and laws that are respected by most people. That's an entire social and governmental construct that doesn't exist in place like Somalia for instance. And then of course there's the infrastructure that no business built by itself. I didn't build and create the internet that I advertise on and communicate with my customers with.

I visited once a country in Asia where the tax given to those small businesses are much bigger than to those having a cooperative. I cannot understand why they have it. It is very different from what should be though.
