Want to hear an economist from Washington DC try to persuade a Bay Area
audience to be even *more* excited about the next 40 years than they (you)
already are? ... Yeah, this should be fun:

I'm mostly going to be drawing from my most recent book in this talk, as
the title suggests. But I'm also going to take a few minutes to describe
the newly incorporated National Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation,
in which I'm involved as president and board chair. (More on that at the
end below, after some links about the book.)

The talk is 5-6 pm at Xerox PARC, and there's a reception afterward. (If
you want to join dinner afterward with the folks from PARC, let me know.)

See you Thursday, and tell your friends!

"Philip Auerswald shows the role that innovators must play if we are to
create 'The Coming Prosperity.' In this important book, he reminds us that
challenging the status quo is the inescapable first step toward building
the future of our dreams."
- President Bill Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and
42nd president of the United States:

will contribute to meeting a vital national need: creating an environment

her productive potential. The Center will also serve as a focal point for
programming related to the celebration of the Sestercentennial of the
United States upcoming in 2026. By acting as a hub for the development of
21st century skills and the expansion of 21st century opportunity, the
Center will mobilizing resources and capabilities toward the goal of
ensuring that the next century of entrepreneurial opportunity reaches every
