              Large countries with burgeoning populations such as China, India, and Brazil have economies that have grown exponentially over the last few decades, and projections indicate that they will continue to do so for some time to come. This book argues that this introduction of the maj...ority of the world's population into the global economy should be considered a source of great opportunity. Auerswald links personal, social entrepreneurship narratives with global movements, in which 'the rise of the rest' are not threats to the world's stability but rather unique opportunities to discover new pathways toward progress and prosperity.
