Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity
I have just finished reading a very interesting book written by one of our newest clients, Chris Rabb, entitled INVISIBLE CAPITAL: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity.
Although the focus of this well researched, thought provoking book is geared toward entrepreneurs or potential entrepreneurs, the knowledge and ideas that Chris Rabb puts forth should be of great value to anyone interested in bolstering our economy and strengthening our democracy.
I was particularly interested in his thoughts on language and how it can color our beliefs. In the current political climate where phrases like “small business , “job creation” and “the American dream” are ubiquitous , he uses his own experience working in Washington and information gathered from different government agencies to better define and dispel myths associated with these and other commonly used phrases.
I like the spirit with which this book was written, especially when we have been bombarded with so much negative discourse. Cicily Maton
