Interest: Recent reports from two respected nonprofits — the Brookings Institution and the Kauffman Foundation — have raised alarms that the number of business start-ups in the United States is falling. The rate of new companies being started fell by nearly half from 1978 to 2011, according to a May report from the Brookings Institution. Wisconsin ranked in the middle of the pack in terms of its rate of decline over that period, the report says.
