A little India is needed

I've been in India for a few weeks. People there are very entrepreneurial ... lots of them set up micro businesses, some of them grow into SMEs, a few grow really large. the sheer size of the population means that full employment in the Western sense is unlikely but also means there are all sorts of niche markets to be exploited. So creativity and entrepreneurship flourish.

How do we create that 'drive' and that energy in the West. Do people here have it too easy?.. they get the basics whatever they do.  Where is the impetus to strike out on your own and take the risk?

How do we create the equivalent of Indian entrepreneurship in a rich, Western economy?
