    As jobs become harder to find in the wake of the economic crisis,
    new research suggests that YOUNG people frozen out of jobs are
    setting up their own businesses as 'entrepreneurial mood' grows

    And it's great. The more people try, the more successful businesses we can see around which is fantastic! I admire people who are not afraid to start own business, and I am very happy about the fact you mentioned that young people don't give up in these hard times.

    What's interesting is this is kinda similar to what happened during the great depression. New opportunities were formed and great wealth was the result of those opportunities being taken. I for one am very excited about the possibilities that lie ahead!!

    Normally setting up your own business has been a tougher option than getting a job. It's interesting that the recession is encouraging people who would normally be in jobs to set up their own business. In a way, it's probably a benefit of the recession.

    Owning a business will not just put those Young people in Jobs but also make them employer. They can also employ some other people, so there will be no problem like unemployment or recession. It's better to own a Business then to do a job in someone's company. But It's not easier said than done. You need hard-work and dedication to put up your own business.

    That's great idea. Young people should get experience while doing Job in any company. When they attain about market idea then they should start their own business. Job in any company teaches you many thing to startup a business.

    It's great that young people are getting into entrepreneurship.For the last few years, people have been getting a job, as a way out to not do any "work" and own a business. Luckily that's turning around. In these hard times, especially for young people, it makes sense for them to learn about business, money and entrepreneurship because the ability to work for yourself is huge.

    It's a great thing if young peoples are planning to set up their own businesses. This is the best way to get new business entrepreneur like we had bill gates, zukemburg and many others. They got their success with own business plan not by a job.
