I am still reading this book by my friend and Operation HOPE Partner Jim Clifton, chairman and CEO of Gallup, but already I now this — this book (THE COMING JOBS WAR) changes everything. It changes a nation's and its leaders approach to public policy, to civil engagement, to job creation, to growing a nation's GDP — and to what comes next o the other side of this global economic crisis.
I am proud to be a partner with Jim Clifton and Gallup in the Gallup-HOPE Index, and I am honored that Operation HOPE and our work is also featured in Jim's groundbreaking new book. Look for Jim Clifton and I to collaborate strongly in 2012 as we "talk in" the power of both the theories incorporated in the Index, as well as this important book.
Stay tuned, and READ THIS BOOK!
