Immigrants More Likely To Start A Business

Immigrants were much more likely than native-born Americans to start a business last year. So says a national survey by the Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.

Before we get too proud of the local based-foundation, the state of Missouri has one of the lowest rates of entrepreneurial activity, coming in at number 46. Given the limitations in law on business behaviour for legal immigrants, I'm not sure what any of this means, if anything.

Handy Irish Phrase: Is iad ná muca ciúine a itheas an mhin   (It is the quiet pigs that eat the meal)
