It's one of the most compelling and vital things I've read in quite a while . . .? - American Express Open Forum ?a clear-eyed, sober and well researched assessment of how we can bring innovation back into the economy, begin creating jobs and restore the middle class in this country.? - 800CEOREAD The innovation engine that powered the U.S. economy to unmatched prosperity since World War II is failing threatening the way we work and live. America has lost its leadership position in critical new technology sectors like biotech, alternative energy, next-generation LED illumination, and advanced materials. Real per capita income is down. Job growth is stalled. And small business, the key driver of economic growth in the US, is faltering. How can America revitalize its entrepreneurial leadership?

This book is an irresistible call to action for: Removing regulatory shackles from start-ups Fixing the patent office to incentivize innovation Creating smarter government support of basic science and research Offering meaningful incentives to rebuild our manufacturing sector Easing immigration rules to turn America's brain drain into a brain gain Filled with evocative stories and telling examples, Great Again presents an action plan that entrepreneurs and policymakers can rally behind."
