We've propped up zombie companies that create McJobs

We've overinvested in yesterday's industries to the point that they're now the walking dead - but the cost, of course, has been failing to seed tomorrow's.

We don't have awesome jobs because we've propped up zombie companies that create, largely, McJobs - when they create any at all. Conversely, the incentives for entrepreneurship are drying up, thanks to a broken ventureconomy.

Feeling like there are connected threads between stuff like this and Dave Pollard's thinking on coop economies. Except, I agree with some of the comments over there. The step 1 of company creation by committee is damn hard.
