Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

this is a very interesting comment.  we had a discussion re: entrepreneurship and small business in France about a year ago.  i had been involved in starting a joint venture between a US and French company, and found the regulations bureaucratic and cumbersome.  In discussion on this, most of the other europeans on the site, mainly the French commented I believe, felt that the situation was not difficult in France.  and in fact that there were a lot of small company start-ups.  your experience seems to be very contrary to that.

I hope others on this site that argued that position will comment.

wchurchill, i looked for this but could not find it.  do you have the link by chance?  (you discussed your experiences with that joint venture in that discussion, right?  i am very interested in reading that.)

bruno-ken, I just spent 1/2 hour going through my diaries to see if the discussion was part of one of them.  I didn't find it in my diaries, or in the comments on my diaries.

I don't think I have access to all of the comments I have made over the past almost 2 years now.  they seem to expire on my comments section.  It would probably drive me crazy to go through my own comments over this long of a period anyway--must be well over a thousand.

so sorry but I can't help.  I don't know if Jerome or coleman have any search facilities.  and I don't know for sure who was involved in the discussion, it was so long ago.  I would guess Laurent was involved, but I just don't know.

thanks for searching anyway, and sorry for the time you took.

just one point: did you check the "Search Archive" box if you were using the EuroTrib search function?  (if you don't, then the search defaults only to the last month or so of results).
