Vision and entrepreneurship are America’s formula for success

The current administration continues to wring its hands as it struggles to jumpstart the economy. Much of the problem is philosophical. The appropriate role of the government is not to steer our economy or try to control it. It’s to help create the necessary market conditions for the private sector and then get out of the way so that small businesses, big businesses and entrepreneurs are able to seize the initiative and build. Left to their own devices, American businessmen will continue to innovate, to explore new horizons, to generate new jobs and to propel our nation forward.
The decision by the Oneida Indian Nation was to double down during a time of economic uncertainty and to embark on their initiatives and build when the economic forecast was allegedly dire. This willingness to swing for the fences at the very time that we are all being conditioned to fret is a powerful example of self-belief and long-term vision.
A healthy dose of optimism, creativity, foresight and an unflagging entrepreneurial spirit have been the recipe for past achievement in this country. It will also be the formula for future success.
