The president of the government Mariano Rajoy has made an important announcement in Asturias: the development of a law that regulates the activity of entrepreneurs and that will simplify many existing regulations. In the latter case, enormous progress can be made by eliminating a series of nonsensical norms, regulations that represent an ineffective and absurd bureaucratic tangle, annoying, instead of an incentive to promote ideas and projects of young entrepreneurs who begin to doubt their commitment before a bureaucratic administrative environment, obsolete and at odds with the rationality and digital efficiency of our time.
Digital culture and regulation bureaucratic culture are deeply at odds. A country that goes to six million unemployed cannot afford to put obstacles in the way of those who want to create companies. SMEs created 85% of employment in the EU between 2002 and 2010. This well-known figure should have been enough for the Zapatero government to make it an absolute priority months ago.
In many advanced countries, companies are created online in 48 hours. Who wants to create a company is identified and a red carpet is put on: ALL FACILITIES. And these administrations are probably much more efficient than ours when it comes to looking after public interests that can be affected by business activity (environment, underground economy, tax evasion, health and hygiene, etc.). Because what will increase these guarantees will be good inspection services, not a ridiculous tangle of "preventive" administrative bureaucracy. I insist, six million unemployed demand to change not only the administrative procedures to create a company but also the entrepreneur's own social conception, his prestige and central social function in a globalized market economy. There is an outdated mix of the Bolshevik complex and an idea that today's entrepreneurs are still the quintessence of crudely narrated labor exploiters. dikensian.
Universities should be an extraordinarily fertile field in the creation of technology-based companies by teachers and hundreds of graduates with a strong vocation for entrepreneurship. We achieve just almost the opposite. Can a country with six million unemployed afford it?
