Capitalist at Large chronicles entrepreneur James Jameson's 35-year career building companies in developing and formerly communist countries and details the unique perspective on the world he gained as International President of the Young Presidents' Organization (YPO) and during a stint as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Trade Development in the George H.W. Bush administration. It tells of friendships with revolutionary heroes and domestic entrepreneurs in the emerging Soviet bloc, where he privatized a Polish publishing house after communism, and in Asia, where he helped launch an online bookseller in China. Throughout these experiences, Jameson acknowledges the shortcomings of free market economics while remaining confident that such markets offer the best chance for increased human prosperity. Interspersed with his business and international musings are 'interludes' about the intellectual and spiritual journey that shaped his life decisions and personal success. Capitalist at Large will appeal to current and aspiring businesspeople and anyone seeking to understand the opportunities and challenges posed by the increasingly interdependent world economy. Most importantly, the book makes the case for an optimistic view of human progress undeterred by the economic and geopolitical setbacks of the past few years. "... a fascinating perspective on global events of the last half century." David Nott, President, The Reason Foundation
