MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- While the White House gathered experts to discuss creating new jobs to save our economy, a few miles away, lifelong scientist, Robert R. Carkhuff, has already generated the solution in his groundbreaking new book - Saving America: The Generativity Solution (HRD Press, 2010). This work presents innovative ways to grow the economy while sounding the alarm bell for all to hear.

In January of last year, in the midst of our greatest economic meltdown, when the Financial Stimulus Package emerged from the White House devoid of entrepreneurial encouragement, Carkhuff released his own "Generativity Stimulus Package"--which focused upon generative entrepreneurism as a means to unbridled expansion. He struck a nerve and never stopped until this work crystallized into book form.

That was one year ago. And while technological innovation, job creation, and the GDP continue on their steep decline, Carkhuff's Saving America boldly presents key concepts that pave the way for a new generation of entrepreneurism. According to Carkhuff, our current solutions are the historical functions of entrepreneurs and their companies. His research shows that with elevated levels of economic freedom there is enormous potential in the power of the entrepreneur to generate prosperity. Entrepreneurial "generativity" can spur as much as 80% of job creation to implement potentially 80% of technological innovation, and generate up to 50% of GDP. "Entrepreneurism is our greatest source of fuel in this economy. Why not use it now to its greatest potential?"

Carkhuff recommends removing as many barriers of regulation and taxation as humanly possible so entrepreneurs can focus freely on generating prosperity in their homes, communities, cultures, and economies: "Human brainpower is not political!"

Robert R. Carkhuff has published dozens of books and is best known for his pioneering work transforming human resources into invaluable human capital. His companies have generated nearly one-half billion dollars while creating "cutting edge" technologies resulting in thousands of jobs. He is a true scientist and an authentic entrepreneur and Saving America: The Generativity Solution is required reading for all citizens who hope to raise the bar of prosperity for our nation and the world.
