Minority Entrepreneurs

NPR's Snigdha Prakash reports on a Milken Institute report that says minority entrepreneurs aren't getting enough investment capital. Though African-Americans and Hispanics make up about 23 percent of the country's population, they only own about nine percent of the businesses. Analysts say this could impact America's retiring generation of workers, who're dependent on the wages and profits of younger generations.
