Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The other trouble with Derber's plan is that every time we have a discussion here about "SME" and "job creation" we seem to find that this cliche isn't as robust in reality as it is in people's minds. That is to say, whilst it is a commonplace for people to say things like:

Most jobs are generated in the small and midsize business sector where genuine entrepreneurship still exists.

the evidence is rather more ambiguous.

(Where's TGeraghty when you need him? He's the one with good sources to link to on this stuff.)
