Beyers & Lindahl, "Lone Eagles and High Fliers in Rural Producer Services." by William B. Beyers and David P. Lindahl. "Producer service firms are growing rapidly in rural areas. Included in this expansion are "Lone Eagles" export-oriented sole proprietors and "High Fliers" export-oriented companies with at least one employee. Interviews with 240 rural producer service firms located in a diverse sample of rural counties show that about 40 percent of the businesses are Lone Eagles or High Fliers."
