Creativity is what matters in economics. It is what makes economies grow.

George Gilder, venture capitalist and bestselling author of Wealth & Poverty, will be featured on Total Career Success, an Internet show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network, at 11 a.m. Central on Monday, December 27. The show is designed to inform and encourage listeners to achieve their career goals by featuring experts and business leaders to provide job search assistance and career advancement. George Gilder’s 1981 best-seller Wealth & Poverty made the moral case for capitalism to millions of Americans, changing the national debate and helping to pave the way for the Reagan era. In his latest book, The Israel Test, he makes the case for Israel’s importance to America and the world for the capitalistic values we share in common. He shares insights and encouragement on how to get the economy growing again and creating jobs.

Gilder discusses practical solutions to the economy and job growth including:

  •     How meeting customer needs enables businesses to succeed
  •     Essential need for creative entrepreneurs to drive job growth
  •     Importance of marriage and family to cultural vitality
  •     Underlying importance of information over matter for creation
  •     Danger of debt to economic growth

Providing specific examples and historical perspective, Gilder debunks the fallacies of socialism and liberalism.

George Gilder declares, “Creativity is what matters in economics. It is what makes economies grow. The interest rate is the predictable yield, but profit is the unexpected variable yield from an investment. Entrepreneurs create new things, and whether they succeed or not is dependent on the willingness of other producers to exchange their production for the output of the entrepreneurs.”    

Gilder added, “If laws are multiplying and changing all the time that stifles the kind of creative activity that can overcome our US debt predicament.”

Show co-host Sheryl Dawson shared, “George Gilder presents a cogent argument for the importance of capitalism and freedom to get the economic vitality we seek and need to create jobs.”

Dawson added, “George tells it like it is. When it comes to money, technology, and economic common sense, no one makes more sense!”

Co-host Ken Dawson added, “The historical record speaks loudly that expanding government and interference in the markets reduces economic growth. While the US moves towards socialism, Europe, China and developing countries are jumping on the capitalist band wagon.”

The show will air live at 11 a.m. - noon Central on December 27, 2010. To listen, please visit and search for Total Career Success. The archived show will be available for replay or download at the Total Career Success website, or from iTunes
