Fewer small businesses per capita in small towns

Read more here in the Washington Post:
Americans in small towns and rural communities are dramatically less likely to start new businesses than they have been in the past, an unprecedented trend that jeopardizes the economic future of vast swaths of the country.
After all, how many pictures have you seen of the downtowns of small towns, with lots/most shops boarded up?  Depressing stuff.  No wonder much of rural America is experiencing population loss.
