Product description

Review

The Coming Prosperity is an entertainingly enlightened read on the inherent value of entrepreneurial activity. Auerswald writes with a humorously incisive monologue that gives it a general accessibility, and should certainly be read by policy-makers, businesses, and would-be entrepreneurs. However it is also filled with well-referenced articles from a multitude of academic disciplines that can be useful for academics interested in entrepreneurship studies. (Maria Carvalho, London School of Economics)

Philip Auerswald shows the role that innovators must play if we are to create 'The Coming Prosperity.' In this important book, he reminds us that challenging the status quo is the inescapable first step toward building the future of our dreams. (President Bill Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd president of the United States)

With compelling writing, Auerswald offers an enjoyable and thought-provoking read. (Publishers Weekly)

Lively writing style, and the analysis is lightened with personal anecdotes and pop-culture references (Matthew Rees, Wall Street Journal)

Philip E Auerswald is a passionate advocate of the power of human creativity and the entrepreneurial spirit to overcome the many obstacles to economic and social development. ... The style is lively and accessible to any interested reader but still has an edge to provoke the specialist.

About the Author

Philip Auerswald is an Associate Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University and a Senior Fellow at the Kauffman Foundation. He is also the Cofounder and Coeditor of Innovations, a quarterly journal about entrepreneurial and technological solutions to global challenges.
