"The Coming Prosperity"
Philip Auerswald

"Philip Auerswald shows the role that innovators must play if we are to create 'The Coming Prosperity.' In this important book, he reminds us that challenging the status quo is the inescapable first step toward building the future of our dreams."
— President Bill Clinton


Philip Auerswald believes we're living in the most exciting period of human history. Over the next quarter century, three billion people will join the global economy — the most dramatic transformation in all civilization. While most thinkers today see the century ahead as a time of disasters and challenges, Phil sees it as a time of great opportunity. The real story of the 21st century isn't a dark story of scarcity. It's a thrilling adventure in prosperity and growth. It's the story of his book, The Coming Prosperity: How Entrepreneurs are Transforming the Global Economy. 

Philip Auerswald is an Economist at George Mason University and a Senior Fellow at the Kauffman Foundation. He co-founded and co-edits Innovations, a quarterly journal from MIT Press about entrepreneurial solutions to global challenges. He is an associate at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University, and a former lecturer and assistant director at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. He has served as a consultant to the National Academies of Science, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and as an advisor to the Clinton Global Initiative.
