Immigrant Inc.

I finally got around to reading Immigrant, Inc.: Why Immigrant Entrepreneurs Are Driving the New Economy (and how they will save the American worker)

Why the delay? Several reasons which you can read about in the review.

Authors Richard Herman and Robert Smith did a terrfific job on a tough topic.

You will enjoy, and be inspired by, the stories of successful immigrants such as Desh Deshpande, Monte Ahuja and Jason Lin.

You will be made uneasy by the negative prospects for our country if we are not more welcoming to talented immigrants.

Hopefully you will be inspired to become involved with current efforts in Philadelphia, Cleveland and other cities to change the status quo.

Don't be confused by the videos of Mexicans climbing over a fence. That is not the issue tackled in this book.

As you will see in the Great Lakes Geek review, this is an important business book.
