Book: “That Used To Be Us- How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back” by Thomas Friedman and Michael Mandelbaum
America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them. In That Used to Be Us, Thomas L. Friedman, one of our most influential columnists, and Michael Mandelbaum, one of our leading foreign policy thinkers, analyze those challenges—globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation’s chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption—and spell out what we need to do now to rediscover America and rise to this moment.
As a reminder, you don’t have to read the book! The facilitator will share the main principles from the book with the group.
Mohamed-Ali Hasan will facilitate this stimulating discussion.

During this roundtable we'll:
• share our own experiences in this area in our businesses
• share best practices from our own personal experience or from industry thought leaders
• share ideas on how to improve the area within our businesses to fuel growth
Note: We are looking for people to facilitate book discussions, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is a book that you’re passionate about and would like to share with the group. We are currently looking to fill the 2013 calendar. The meetings take place the second Friday of every month, so pick a month that suits you for 2013!
