Venture Capitalist Profits as Economic Indicator

Jeff at Entrepreneurial Mind noticed this article on Inc., which points to the fact that VC’s are starting to turn profits again as a strong economic indicator…

This is another good sign of the entrepreneurial expansion fueling this economy.

However, the article itself points to annual returns on venture funds being around 8.1%… which doesn’t seem like the best return someone with a few billion in spare change could make on their money. :)
