Leadership Excellence Essentials;May2008, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p8
The authors provide their insights on how events in places such as India and China should serve as a warning to people in the U.S. to change. They look at the developments in India and China and conclude that professional costs will also increase at par with that of the U.S. They also challenge the notion that these countries are going to wait for technology innovations from the U.S. They believe that the U.S. will be able to maintain its superpower status, in line with India and China, if Americans can restimulate their entrepreneurial spirit.
