A great review of Econovation by Gregg Fraley. A quick excerpt:
I wish I had picked it up sooner because it’s a fascinating, erudite, bitingly funny, well researched, and I think important book.
Americans — Buy one now and send it to your Congressman. Tell him or her that if they don’t read it you’ll lash them with wet Chinese noodles at the door to their office.
European readers, there’s plenty to learn from Faktor’s manifesto about how to reinvent an economy. As the title suggests, it’s a blend of economic and innovation thinking, but it’s also about trends, and, ultimately about large scale ideas.
Just in: new review of my book Econovation. Funny, I never intended it for a European audience, but it still resonates. Maybe I am special, like mommy used to tell me…? Excerpt:
“This book is a highly accessible description of the US- economic problems and opportunities. It offers a concise overview of causes and underlying trends. It identifies opportunities, on the input and output side. In this way it offers highly instructive recommendations and lessons for every (not limited to the US) business leader, entrepreneur and professional. Lots of data presented with insight and humor…This book (some will claim it to be a true manifesto) is a must read for anyone who is interested in connecting to the changing context in our business world.”
