Presents a Book Launch:



Better Capitalism

Renewing the Entrepreneurial Strength of the American Economy


Featuring:  Author, Robert E. Litan, Director of Research, Bloomberg Government, formerly the vice president for research and policy for the Kauffman Foundation and a past senior fellow at the Brookings Institution 

Moderated by: Kent Hughes, Director, Program on America and the Global Economy


Better Capitalism focuses on the huge – but often unrecognized – importance of entrepreneurship to overall economic growth.  The book explains how changes in seemingly unrelated policy arenas – immigration, education, finance, and federal support of university research – can accelerate America’s recovery from recession and spur the nation’s rate of growth in output while raising living standards.  The authors also outline an innovative energy strategy and discuss the potential benefits of government belt-tightening steps.  Sounding an optimistic note when gloomy predictions are the norm, Litan and Schramm show that with wise and informed policymaking, the American entrepreneurial engine can rally and the true potential of the U.S. economy can be unlocked.
