Let's face it. Seemingly every day another piece of data is reported that suggest the economy is on the road to recovery...except for jobs.

Sure the unemployment rate is down to 8.9 percent, the lowest level since April of 2009 as 192,000 jobs were added last month. Also, the December and January new jobs numbers were revised upward by a total of 58,000 jobs.

Could Chile--or other countries--steal the US's entrepreneurial thunder?

An often-repeated solution to the economy's woes is to boost high-growth  entrepreneurship. That's one reason some politicians have been pushing a new startup-visa bill making it  easier for foreign entrepreneurial wannabes to set up shop in the US.

Now, however, it looks like other countries might be trying to steal the US's thunder. Chile, for example is launching a first-of-its-kind program aimed at encouraging entrepreneurs with ideas for high-growth businesses to base their operations in that country. Called Start-Up Chile , the program will award up to $40,000 and a one-year resident visa to 25 entrepreneurs "with innovative and high-growth business plans that have the potential of bringing disruptive technology into its industry or the global market."

Reflections on the crisis

Today is my last day at CFOZone. I'm heading to Inc.com to cover the world of small businesses and entrepreneurs.

I've always joked that throughout my career I've left a trail of destruction. Right out of undergrad, I worked on Wall Street briefly. The year was 1999 and I worked for the online brokerage firm TD Waterhouse. Remember those days? Everybody was a trader. Retail money was flowing into companies like TD and E*Trade. I left in early 2000. We all know what happened shortly after that.

Going Concern

Submitted by Caleb Newquist, republished from Going Concern, Accounting News for Accountants and CFOs.

It's been a few days since we had read anything on embezzler of the year 2009, Sue Sachdeva. We figured the whole thing was on the fast track to getting resolved since her attorney started claiming that the woman has an addiction. Well today, we checked in over at Fraud Files Blog where Tracy Coenen has come up with a theory that blows the whole shop-until-you-die argument out of the water.
