Imagine a world where there are no building codes, no licensing requirements, no permit fees, no inspectors#151;no rules or regulations, only common sense and the desire to build something better. This is the world that forged America, the land where the early pioneers and town developers thrived.

But this type of open environment is long gone.

It’s prohibitively expensive for young entrepreneurs to start a business today. In fact, it is almost impossible to build anything unless you are part of a larger organization that has the expertise and resources to navigate the system. Our municipal, state, and federal codes, from business permitting and OSHA compliance to occupational licenses and tax requirements, have blossomed out of control.

Today’s innovators and builders must ignore the rules, go to places where the rules are not enforced, or figure out how to get around them.The New Pioneersis the story of Americans#151;millennials, immigrants, artists, and entrepreneurs#151;who are doing just that in cities across the nation, including Detroit, San Diego, New Orleans, Phoenix, and many more.
