Praise for Entrepreneurial Nation
"I have always believed that America remains the greatest superpower of innovation. Khanna is a leading thinker on how to make U.S. manufacturing more competitive across this country, whether it comes to making high-technology planes, cars, steel bars, fire suits, or even blenders. The unconventional ideas in this book chart the path America can take to lead the world for years to come."--Elon Musk, CEO and founder of Tesla and Space X
"This captivating book adds to the growing discourse on the relevance of American ingenuity and our manufacturing heritage . . . It is a collection of captivating stories and real ideas on how to keep America competitive in the 21st Century."--Ellen Kullman, Chair and CEO, DuPont, one of America's original manufacturing companies
"Entrepreneurial Nation is an excellent reminder of what makes American manufacturing great . . . It's an important read for anyone interested in impacting our manufacturing future."--Paul Otellini, president and CEO, Intel Corporation
"Khanna lays out a refreshing vision of innovation-based U.S. manufacturing leadership, not just competitiveness. Entrepreneurial Nation is based on the views and experiences of real manufacturers making real products in America. It prescribes a hefty dose of federal policy changes to empower privatesector innovation in manufacturing. This is a very important addition to a very important debate."--Charles Vest, President Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and president of the National Academy of Engineering
"Khanna led Commerce's domestic offices that implemented President Obama’s National Export Initiative. He was a key player in the policy debate in Washington, and he was in the trenches listening to the perspective of manufacturers across our country. It shows. His book provides a powerful vision of what American companies need to do to thrive and grow in the world market."--Austan Goolsbee, Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, Obama Administration , 2010–2011
