Thomas Friedman on Entrepreneurial Education

Thomas Friedman, "The New Untouchables," New York Times, October 21, 2009, courtesy Scott Tilden

Those who are waiting for this recession to end so someone can again hand them work could have a long wait. Those with the imagination to make themselves untouchables — to invent smarter ways to do old jobs, energy-saving ways to provide new services, new ways to attract old customers or new ways to combine existing technologies — will thrive. Therefore, we not only need a higher percentage of our kids graduating from high school and college — more education — but we need more of them with the right education.
