Descrizione prodotto


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.


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.

HASH(0x9e857318) su 5 stelle Academic Busts Out Wonderful Insight 24 giugno 2012
Di ARB - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
Lots of pleasant surprises in this book. The first is that an academic can write so engagingly and accessibly. Auerswald lets his fun personality show in his writing style, and yet the message remains as serious as it is optimistic, which is of course another surprise.

And so is the breadth it covers in relatively few pages. This book reflects years of research and thought. One can imaging a writer needing an entire career to write this but thank goodness Auerswald wrote it up when he did, so the rest of us can get a better understanding of the sort of technological tipping point we have reached. His point -- that technology, especially personal communications, has finally trickled down far enough that most of the several billion earthlings are now empowered to act on their entrepreneurial ideas -- might seem overly rosy but Auerswald backs it up with research and intelligent analysis. Yet another surprise is that the research and analysis are perhaps more persuasive than one might expect from an academic precisely because they do not come across as strictly academic. (To be sure, the thinking reflects an implicit critique of academia -- that it is perhaps too insular and set into departments to keep up with the rapidly increasing pace of the generation of new knowledge.)

I hope Auerswald is able to push the messages in his book into other channels of presentation because in many ways the message is more dynamic than a paper and ink book can do justice, and it surely begs to be updated and discussed. Frequently.

HASH(0x9e85736c) su 5 stelle Powerful positive predictions raise hope and blast those recessionary blues 26 luglio 2012
Di Rolf Dobelli - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
This iconoclastic, deeply informed book by economist Philip E. Auerswald contests conventional pessimistic thinking on some big issues - from recession to global warming - facing humanity in general and business and government in particular. He says the solutions lie in the millions of people who are rising up from economic exclusion to become entrepreneurs. Writing - sometimes with a dash of humor - from the unrepentant point of view of an economist, Auerswald uses a rigorous theoretical economic framework and compelling case histories to set his book apart from other arguments for confidence about the future. He combines scholarship about everyone from Adam Smith to Joseph Schumpeter with personal anecdotes about his development and the evolution of his thinking about the future. Occasionally, the personal jars a little with the grand theory. Auerswald is the first to note his book's obvious flaw: the lack of a detailed plan to achieve the rosy outcomes he predicts. A more disciplined focus and fewer argumentative swerves might have paid dividends. He offers an approach to solving intractable problems, rather than the solution itself, but getAbstract finds his realistic reticence and his optimism worthy of respect.

HASH(0x9eda8630) su 5 stelle Entrepreneurship - Let's get the show on the road. 31 marzo 2012
Di Justin Badlam - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The global economy is at a crossroads. In Europe, financial melees have enthralled governments and threatened long-term economic vitality. Washington is also struggling. Bipartisan gridlock, a Congress that can't seem to agree on anything, and policies that many argue have fallen short in resuscitating the economy have shaken an already anxious populace.

Despite the tremendous crisis the world has faced, the global conversation has failed to focus on the one thing that can accelerate the changes necessary to solve our problems: entrepreneurship. This is the main theme of Phil Auerswald's convincing piece of literature on the topic. In "The Coming Prosperity", Auerswald illustrates that the interconnectedness of the global economy, the availability of cheap and user-friendly technologies, and growth of knowledge capital are driving the new wave of global entrepreneurs. Around the world, people are working hard to turn their ideas into innovations, and create products as well as services that benefit communities as a whole.

Recently, the 112th Congress did actually do something, passing the Jumpstart Our Business Startup (JOBS) Act making it easier for start-ups to raise funds, hire employees, and go public. President Obama is expected to sign the measure soon. This is certainly a welcome sign, but it's far from representative of all that needs to happen in addressing our greatest challenges. There absolutely needs to be a fuller, more robust, and dedicated effort to bring entrepreneurship to the mainstream and keep it there.

Policies can only go so far in creating an environment that enables entrepreneurs to thrive. Entrepreneurs create new ways of directing nature and change how we live our lives. They find new ways of assembling and coordinating the interactions between people. So many amazing accomplishments go completely unnoticed. There must be a sea change and a cultural adjustment as to how we promote the contributions of entrepreneurs to our overall well-being. Phil Auerswald's book is a great starting point in building the discussion. We just need to get the show on the road.

HASH(0x9ee77c48) su 5 stelle Forward looking, well researched, interesting and insightful book 18 giugno 2012
Di Just A Review - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
The main thing is I would recommend reading it. This book is hard to classify. Its hard to pin down. Its hard to summarize. The author pulls together an intriguing mix of history and cross-subject material in presenting the story. The book is filled with insightful comments and reads thought provoking. Who is it for? I think mostly it is for policy wonks (weaving discussion of Montesquieu, Schumpeter, Thomas Robert Malthus, immigration and population control, China's historical GDP, triple bottom lines and HDI, etc). Prosperity and Entreprenuership are in effect being redefined a little and this book aims at highlighting this emerging trend.

The main theme is globalization and technology impacting society and the economy. Innovations can come really fast in a global world that is connecting more and more people via social media. Another theme is the need to balance order and adaptability. Thriving countries need structure, but also have to adapt. On an individual level this is the balance between skills and creativity. Overall the author sees a post-American future. I'm not sure I agree with everything in the book (too much corporate-government power actually may stand in the way of unleashing the creativity and entrepreneurship this book hopes for), but I strongly recommend both reading it and following what the author continues writing and talking about. The author strongly conveys throughout to stop thinking in terms of liberal/conservative and left/right, though there is some Clinton/Obama name dropping. Anyway, lots of inspiring talk and mind expanding material worth reading!

HASH(0x9e770078) su 5 stelle Important and surprisingly funny 16 luglio 2012
Di Phil Simon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida
When I read Friedman and Mandlebaum's "That Used to be Us", I was a bit skeptical about their ultimately optimistic conclusions. With so many problems facing us, how are we going to survive--much less thrive?

It is here that "The Coming Prosperity" delivers. Yes, we have formidable challenges facing us. But the tools we have to conquer them have never been greater--and more readily available. The author has the rare ability to make you laugh about ants and Marxism, about chaos and order.

Don't get me wrong. I still have my doubts. But many of my concerns are allayed after reading this book. I learned a great deal in the process. This isn't your normal economics' book.
