 Abstract 
Compared to all prior recessions since the end of World War II, the 2007-2009recession ranks worst in terms of the number of jobs lost (over eight million), andsecond worst in the percentage decline (6 percent). The key to economic recovery willcome in the form of newly created jobs. But where will these jobs come from?Using United States Census Bureau data from 2006-2007, this paper examines net new job creation in terms of firm
age
rather than firm
size
. Until 2005, we knew that from1980-2005, nearly all net job creation in the United States occurred in firms less thanfive years old. This data set also shows that without startups, net job creation for theAmerican economy would be negative in all but a handful of years. If one excludesstartups, an analysis of the 2007 Census data shows that young firms (defined as oneto five years old) still account for roughly two-thirds of job creation, averaging nearly four new jobs per firm per year. Of the overall 12 million new jobs added in 2007, youngfirms were responsible for the creation of nearly 8 million of those jobs.Given this information, it is clear that new and young companies and the entrepreneursthat create them are the engines of job creation and eventual economic recovery. Thedistinction of firm age, not necessarily size, as the driver of job creation has manyimplications, particularly for policymakers who are focusing on small business as theanswer to a dire employment situation.

A keen analysis and exceedlingly well-written too. Therefore powerful argument. Yes, "remove roadblocks for entrepreneurs" and don't strangle start-ups. That kind of enterprise and creativity's been in our blood since...oh...1776
