Are zero-employee businesses good for the economy?

Kauffman Foundation recently released data for the US that shows that while 2010 startup rate remains the highest in 15 years, some of the startups may be due to lack of other options available to the unemployed.

This leads us to the obvious question: Are zero-employee businesses good for the economy?  What % of such enterprises are profitable?  And do they contribute to growth in the long run if not for the whole economy in terms of creating jobs, at least for the household?
