With "smart immigration" still in the headlines, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is offering a free ebook to help more people understand the issues related to immigrant entrepreneurs and how current policies affect this important economic force in America.
In his pivotal book, The Immigrant Exodus: Why America Is Losing the Global Race to Capture Entrepreneurial Talent, Vivek Wadhwa, a leading scholar and public voice on entrepreneurship and public policy, draws on fifty years of research and his Kauffman Foundation report, "America's New Immigrant Entrepreneurs - Then and Now," to show that growth in immigrant entrepreneurship in the United States has peaked, is stagnating, and is on the verge of decline.
This looming decline is historically unprecedented, and has huge implications for the already-ailing U.S. economy.
Wadhwa's ebook is available for free download from now through July 22, 2013 here: Kauffman.org
