Six years ago I became intensely involved in the company. I started in sales and business development and advanced to project manager and board member. After completing my MBA I will return to my family’s business to execute our expansion plan. I have already started by founding a timber company in Central America and designing a pilot for a smart fueling project in Nigeria and Ghana. My immediate next goal is to focus on growing our telecommunications department. Due to recent investments, this department has potential to serve most of Western Africa with low marginal cost. I intend on leveraging this position by leading our company into other countries, including Nigeria, Liberia and Cameroon.
The Darwin Economy: Liberty, Competition, and the Common Good was published by Princeton University Press on September 21, 2011, as the lead title on its fall list. A very carefully crafted 9-minute video feature about the book by economics correspondent Paul Solman appeared on the PBS NewsHour, and arguments in the book inspired this USA Today op-ed co-written with conservative satirist . O'Rourke. An essay excerpted from the book was published in the Sunday Business section of the New York Times ( "Darwin, The Market Whiz" ), and another except was published in the Cornell Alumni Magazine ( "Starve the Beast" ). The book's first chapter is posted on Princeton’s website here . Links to my NPR interview with Diane Rehm , my conversation with Joe Scarborough on MSNBC's Morning Joe, my Zocalo lecture about the book in Los Angeles, and more are posted on the book’s Facebook page here .
