In the article, Eduardo Saverin, co-founder of Facebook, writes that above all else, “The Social Network” truly highlights the ingenuity of American entrepreneurship.
Sad thing is, American entrepreneurship is decreasing, for several reasons that have only recently (the past few years) been discussed as a major issue of concern. The first is the level of American education, which branches out into several factors, namely the level of math and scientific knowledge students receive in high school, high school dropout rates, the percentage of students studying math and science in college, etc.
This connects with the other factor, which is the high percentage of students who are studying business, believing that ‘that’s where the money is’. While this might be true, because such a disgustingly large sum of money being made in America is from the financial sector, which does practically nothing constructive to the country.
America cannot keep dreaming about making money ‘fast’, and achieving the American dream by gambling in the financial markets. Americans need to stop borrowing, going on credit and then falling into debt. Americans need to put their feet on the ground, get to work, and, once again, become the greatest entrepreneurial nation in the world.
