EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- "The economy." Even the very words strike fear in the heart of anyone who watches the nightly news broadcasts. When will it recover? And what will it take to pull out of this nosedive?
Surfing the big wave of rapid technology change is the only real HOPE for a thriving economy, and the key hope for the future. The truth is that many Fortune 500 companies in the technology business today were launched in a recession or bear market!
"The U.S. is 27th worldwide in educational performance right now," notes Ken Thurber, author of Big Wave Surfing, Extreme Technology Development, Management, Marketing and Investing. "This country is on a slippery slope and how we deal with rapid technological change will determine if we ever get out of this economic downturn."
"Manufacturing, as we knew it, has sailed in this country," says Thurber. "We'll need to grab on to our best and our brightest - the big wave surfers who create technology."
Thurber goes on to say, "Like the physical surfers who ply the big waves at Mavericks Beach, it won't always be pretty. There will be winners. There will be wipeouts and losers. But if we don't boldly embrace the next wave, the innovation economy, then profound structural changes will occur in American society."
