Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle


AUTHOR: Dan Senor

“Start-up Nation” addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel - a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with no natural resources - produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the U.K.?

With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Senor and Singer examine the lessons of the country’s adversity-driven culture, which flattens hierarchy and elevates informality - all backed up by government policies focused on innovation.

AUTHOR : Edward L. Glaeser
PUBLISHER : Penguin Press HC

A pioneering urban economist offers fascinating proof that the city is and our best hope for the future.

More than two-thirds of us live on the 3 percent of land that contains our cities.

Yet cities get a bad rap: they’re dirty, poor, unhealthy, crime ridden, expensive, environmentally unfriendly .?.?. Or are they?

As Edward Glaeser proves in this myth-shattering book, cities are actually the healthiest, greenest and richest (in cultural and economic terms) places to live.
