Lord Young, Godfather of the scheme, identified that if entrepreneurialism was as entrenched into the British mentality as it is in the United States, they would potentially have 900,000 more jobs across their country. With high unemployment, and the job market in a tough position, self-employment is being seriously considered as a viable career path.
