Reviews
"Entrepreneurship is a key virtue of the U.S. economy, which has the potential to lift us out of our current economic malaise. This book provides a thoughtful recipe for encouraging this critical activity."--Josh Lerner, Harvard Business School and author of Boulevard of Broken Dreams--Josh Lerner
"To get out of its economic quagmire, America must end the debate over stimulants. It needs to renovate the economic system. In this book, Robert Litan and Carl Schramm make the case that the best way forward is to pave the way to faster formation and greater support of early-stage high-growth companies."--Edmund S. Phelps, Director, Center on Capitalism and Society, Columbia University and the Winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Economics--Edmund Phelps

"Enabling entrepreneurs to flourish can both grow the economy and make the world a better place. I hope Better Capitalism inspires a new generation to stretch the reach of market forces and create new businesses that drive economic growth while also helping solve the problems of the world's poorest."--Bill Gates--Bill Gates
