START-UP NATION addresses the trillion dollar question: How is it that Israel - a country of 7.1 million, only 60 years old, surrounded by enemies, in a constant state of war since its founding, with natural resources-- produces more start-up companies than large, peaceful and stable nations like Japan, China, India, Korea, Canada and the UK? With the savvy of foreign policy insiders, Ser and Singer examine the lessons of the country's adversity-driven culture, which flattens hierarchy and elevates informality - all backed up by government policies focused on invation. In a world where ecomies as diverse as Ireland, Singapore and Dubai have tried to re-create the Israel effect , there are entrepreneurial lessons well worth ting. As America reboots its own ecomy and can-do spirit, there's never been a better time to look at this remarkable and resilient nation for some impressive, surprising clues.
