Don Not Criminalize Risk Taking.

With so many businesses failing and risk being a pariah of biblical proportions what are some of the future implications and what can we do about it now?

Here is an example.

Say the business you started was to fail. You may feel that you would have been better off if you had stayed in an 8-till-5.30 job and took your 15 days holidays per year instead of giving every hour of every week to your own business.

There is a lot of risk aversion right now. People are saving. Taking too much risk is the stated cause of the mess we are in. But if we somehow criminalize the concept of risk taking where is the innovation and entrepreneurial spirit going to come from in the future?
