[NEW ARRIVALS] The Misfit Economy: Lessons in Creativity from Pirates, Hackers, Gangsters and Other Informal Entrepreneurs

테스트


AUTHOR : Alexa Clay

PUBLISHER : Simon & Schuster

PRICE($) : 26

GENRE : Business & Money

A book that argues that lessons in creativity, innovation, salesmanship, and entrepreneurship can come from surprising places: pirates, bootleggers, counterfeiters, hustlers, and others living and working on the margins of business and society.

The book is about people you’ve never heard of, who are just as innovative, entrepreneurial, and visionary as the Jobses, Edisons, and Fords of the world. They’re in the crowded streets of Shenzhen, the prisons of Somalia, the flooded coastal towns of Thailand. Across the globe, diverse innovators operating in the black, grey, and informal economies are developing solutions to a myriad of challenges.

Far from being “deviant entrepreneurs” that pose threats to our social and economic stability, these innovators display remarkable ingenuity, pioneering original methods and practices that we can learn from and apply to move formal markets.
