Economic Club member Steve Case, Chairman and CEO of Revolution LLC, discussed his new book, The Third Wave: An Entrepreneur’s Vision of the Future, with Club President David M. Rubenstein at a luncheon meeting on April 12.
During the discussion, Mr. Case warned the audience that American entrepreneurship could face the same fate as American manufacturing — meaning, mass migration to foreign markets — if policy makers fail to enact legislation to reform immigration, improve access to capital and streamline the public-offering process. Speculating about whether such action can be achieved soon, Mr. Case said, “can we get it done in a highly charged political environment, when people are so focused on the election? If it doesn’t get done, that’s why — it would be that we couldn’t figure out a way to come together and get it done despite its importance, and that would be a big mistake for our country.”
Copies of the book were provided to all Club members and guests attending the event and Mr. Case was available after the discussion to sign books for interested attendees.
