Since we are a democracy, our government is a government of the people. I am not sure if this is true today, but it is proven true each time in history when civil disobedience occurs. Civil disobedience forces changes in our government.
This next decade is a time for such civil disobedience. Civil disobedience in the past was something that was done with marches or standing in front of public buildings creating awareness and news. Today the idea of doing this is still good, but much harder to do. One may argue that it is easier to organize with the internet, but that is how I believe it should be done.
I read your question as "What are ways the "people" could go about creating entrepreneurs instead of jobs?" Well this is being done as others have mentioned with the MLM businesses and the internet. Internet marketers across the world are training others to be entrepreneurs.
People try to join an MLM business, but in order to succeed they must sell. So than they start the process of becoming a $ales Dog. This is too expensive for the majority of people to do (in their eyes).
So it would be nice to see the people change the government, so that the government would subsidize and make it cheaper to learn to be an entrepreneur. This probably will not happen though because of economics.
Economics is based on supply and demand, as each of us learned when we took our first economics class. The "people" choose to demand things such as cheap food by spending their money on such things. So our government supplies cheap food through subsidizing farmers to grow corn and we have dollar menus at fast food restaurants.
A better question Robert, I think would be, "How can the people create demand for more entrepreneurs so that our government will supply it?"
