If you trust what you hear in the news, America is in trouble. We have moved our manufacturing overseas. We have lost our competitive edge to China, Germany, Japan and Brazil. We have entered our final days as an economic leader. Don't believe it! This provocative book from a former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce will explode the myths you have been fed by the media and reinforce your faith in American ingenuity. Author Ro Khanna takes you inside Washington's economic think tanks and onto the front lines of the most innovative companies in the nation. Despite everything you have heard about the economy, one fact remains: America continues to be a world leader in manufacturing. Some of the world's best products are still being made here. The world's greatest innovations are still being developed by Apple, Google and countless others. This book will prove to you that smart companies are staying ahead of the curve and you too can. You will learn how a fourth-generation business, the Globe Manufacturing Company, customized its firefighting suits to beat foreign competitors. You will discover how Vitamix worked with clients like Starbucks to produce a superior coffee blender and you will hear behind the scenes stories from the American steel industry, aerospace companies, the defense technology sector and other worldclass leaders. You will also learn why companies like Solyndra fail-and what lessons we can take from them. This is more than a book. It is a wake-up call that will spark debate, shatter beliefs and inspire action in every American who wants to succeed in the future. This is Entrepreneurial Nation.
