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. 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.

The benefits of four centuries of technological and organizational change are at last reaching a previously excluded global majority. This transformation will create large-scale opportunities in richer countries like the United States just as it has in poorer countries now in the ascent. In The Coming Prosperity, Philip E. Auerswald argues that it is time to overcome the outdated narratives of fear that dominate public discourse and to grasp the powerful momentum of progress.

Two books argue that entrepreneurs and technology are transforming the global economy. Abundance is techno-utopianism at its worst. The outlook of the book can be summed up by a discussion of the advent of 3-D printers-machines that can form three-dimensional objects much as an inkjet printer forms words. They approvingly quote an innovator of 3-D printing technology: And once that happens it will change everything.

In The Coming Prosperity, Philip Auerswald argues that the introduction of the majority of the world's population into the global economy should be considered a source of opportunity. As technology spreads and communication between populations improves, more people will have a greater opportunity to create economic value for themselves and society than ever before.

Ours is the most dynamic era in human history. The benefits of four centuries of technological and organizational change are at last reaching a previously excluded global majority. This transformation will create large-scale opportunities in richer countries like the United States just as it has in poorer countries now in the ascent.In The Coming Prosperity, Philip E. Auerswald argues that it is time to overcome the outdated narratives of fear that dominate public discourse and to grasp the powerful momentum of progress. Acknowledging the gravity of today's greatest global challenges--like climate change, water scarcity, and rapid urbanization--Auerswald emphasizes that the choices we make today will determine the extent and reach of the coming prosperity. To make the most of this epochal transition, he writes, the key is entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs introduce new products and services, expand the range of global knowledge networks, and, most importantly, challenge established business interests, maintaining the vitality of mature capitalist economies and enhancing the viability of emerging ones. Auerswald frames narratives of inspiring entrepreneurs within the sweep of human history. The book's deft analysis of economic trends is enlivened by stories of entrepreneurs making an outsize difference in their communities and the world--people like Karim Khoja, who led the creation of the first mobile phone company in Afghanistan; Leila Janah, who is bringing digital-age opportunity to talented people trapped in refugee camps; and Victoria Hale, whose non-profit pharmaceutical company turned an orphan drug into a cure for black fever. Engagingly written and bracingly realistic about the prospects of our historical moment, The Coming Prosperity disarms the current narratives of fear and brings to light the vast new opportunities in the expanding global economy.

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.

Global entrepreneurship will be the hallmark attribute of successful ventures in the coming decades. Averages dictate that there are extraordinarily bright and capable people in every country, market & region. Suddenly basic improvements in infrastructure (such as those that enabled an American surge in the early 20th century) are creating a foundation for many of them to flourish. Add mobile telephony and they have the tools to collaborate and bring those innovations to the world.

So this global competition is no longer about "economies" and "cheap labor" but suddenly, given ubiquity of data connections, creativity and entrepreneurship.

The good news is that the US is eminently qualified to compete. The bad news is that large swaths, preferring the illusion of security, may opt to ignore this reality.

Each of us individually has the opportunity to compete and excel globally (and as a corollary, the obligation to provide the context for our kids to step confidently into a global meritocracy); our existing companies have a window of time to adapt to a global and relentlessly innovative mindset which will allow them to excel; yet to be born enterprises that aspire to success will incorporate into their DNA core elements of global entrepreneurship; and as a nation we must acknowledge the seismic shift, and the angst that it engenders, yet unhesitatingly embrace the opportunity that our creative and entrepreneurial spirit position us to leverage.

The role of government must be to unshackle entrepreneurship (remove sclerotic regulations); cease to enable denial through subsidies and barriers which obscure real challenges and opportunities; and desist from vilifying business. The intentionally misleading rhetoric about adequate income levels (and increases in tax rates) will drive the innovators to other markets. Owners of "pass through" companies which generate profits, which they elect to hold as retained earnings to enable future investments, are by character (having started and built businesses) probably audacious enough to react boldly to the punitive mischaracterizations. We had better stop beating on innovators and business builders and embrace and support global entrepreneurship.

The horse is out of the barn, the genie's out of the bottle - many of the other 6B (7B globally less US & EU) people in the world sense their opportunity and will pursue it. If we "hunker down" we'll be overrun.

But the real message of this book is that if we actively engage and proactively lead, we will benefit enormously in treasure and also an advancement of mankind's condition.

Too much of what we read now is bad news. It was great to read a reasoned proposal for how things are going to go to turn out better. It was a very HOPEFUL book.

The author presents compelling case that despite elites and bureaucrats trying to force global events with short-term thinking the masses will find ways to prosper over time. Freedom, entrepreneurs, and new technologies make ongoing progress faster and more inevitable.

Read this or the days when you feel pessimistic about our future, why we do have a positive economic future.

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.
