The wellspring of capital will not be found on Wall Street or in the stuffy halls of corporate America, but instead in the hopes and dreams of people who want to create new products and new approaches to problem solving. It is this wellspring that will ultimately cleanse the soul of corporate America corrupted by power and age. George Gilder's 1984 classic was substantially revised for the 1990s and remains relevant today. This authoritative book looks at what went right in the 1980s and how we can jump-start the economy of the new millenium, featuring unforgettable portraits of entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow, from Bill Gates to members of the dynamic Cuban immigrant community of Miami.
