I like this concept. Small business will drive the next wave of globalization. The next decade will see small business involvement in cross border trade expand substantially due to lower hard and soft barriers, strong economic growth outside of the U.S. and the growing impact of the global Internet and related communications technologies. This structure will result in new opportunities for small businesses to flourish in nice left untouched by large corporations, and lead to more cooperation between large and small companies - particularly in the areas of sales, marketing and innovation. Thanks a lot for sharing this informative post with us.

The current economy has made it plain just how insecure so many careers are. That more so than technology will really push a new wave on innovation and small business entrepeneurship. The numbers calling themselves "self employed" will really boom in the coming decades.
