‘Peace through Entrepreneurship’

Book Review

book-review-peace-through-entrepreneurshipIn “Peace through Entrepreneurship: Investing in Startup Culture for Security and Development,” Steven Koltai, former senior advisor for entrepreneurship in Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department and a 30-year veteran in the field, makes the case that joblessness is the root cause of the global unrest threatening American security and fostering entrepreneurship is the remedy.

From 9/11 and the Arab Spring to the self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate, instability and terror breed where young people cannot find jobs, Koltai contends, while presenting readers with evidence to show that joblessness, not religious or cultural conflicts, is the root cause of the unrest that vexes American foreign policy and threatens international security.

“Peace through Entrepreneurship” argues for the significant elevation of entrepreneurship in the service of foreign policy; not rural microfinance or mercantile trading, but the scalable stuff of Silicon Valley and Sam Walton, generating the vast majority of new jobs in economies large and small.

“Peace through Entrepreneurship” is available at www.800ceoread.com for $19.20.
