In his new book, Philip E. Auerswald envisions an optimistic future in which forward-thinking entrepreneurs emerge from cultures around the world to tackle challenges like climate change, water scarcity, and rapid urbanization. By introducing new goods and services while challenging established business interests, these visionaries will improve the lives not only of the previously excluded global majority, but also of the citizens of the industrialized nations.

Auerswald is an associate professor of public policy at George Mason University and a senior fellow at the Kauffman Foundation.
