"Job creators in America still face serious obstacles. Hiring new employees means jumping through countless regulatory hoops, from employee benefit mandates to IRS reporting requirements to payroll taxes. According to a 2005 study by economist W. Mark Crain, compliance costs average $5,282 per employee at large companies. Small businesses pay $7,647 per employee."

Scholarships to Study Free Market Ideas
National University of La Jolla, CA has a limited number of scholarships available for three online, undergraduate courses that focus on free-market economics and the philosophical foundations of capitalism.
On Open Market, CEI provides more details on the scholarship.
"The scholarships cover the full tuition for the courses plus the application fee to NU. These courses can be taken from anywhere in the world, as long as one has access to the internet. The courses incorporate live chat sessions in which the professor and students interact in a virtual classroom, much as they would in a traditional classroom. "
