Why this book?:
This project arose from the necessity to discuss ideas and present alternatives to establish long-term strategies to restore the economic progress of Puerto Rico. Since 2006 the economy began to show a marked degree of decadence, which at the time of publication of this book, i.e. ten years later, has unleashed an economic crisis unprecedented since the Great Depression of 1929.
The book discusses two strategies where public policy makers, the universities, university students, professors of public and private education systems, entrepreneurial organizations, and individual entrepreneurs can focus, as part of their plans and projects for the country, on stimulating the globalization of small and medium size enterprises with local capital, and the development of entrepreneurship.
The ideas the book contains can also be useful for Caribbean and Latin American economies that are attempting to find ways and means to expand the frontiers of their enterprises to further economic growth and are looking for alternatives to traditional ways of eliminating unemployment in the labor force.
