Number of Startups Dropped in 2011

Where did all the entrepreneurs go?  According to a survey from Challenger, Grey & Christmas, there were less startups in 2011 than in any other year in the past 11 years.

During the last two quarters of 2011 only 3.2% of unemployed managers and executives started a business, down by 50% since the same two quarters in 2010.

By the end of the year the number of self-employed individuals dropped to 8,587,000, down 172,000 since the beginning of 2011.
