內容簡介

  國際貧富不均、國家經濟發展遲滯…心懷善意的國際援助與深具野心的建設計畫,為什麼沒有見效?

  《你要如何衡量你的人生?哈佛商學院最重要的一堂課」、《創新的兩難》克利斯汀生.克雷頓教授,運用長年傾注心血的經濟「創新」研究──揭示了為何這麼多的經濟發展投資無法為市場帶來可持續的繁榮光景,並為真正長久的變革帶來突破性的解決方案。
 
  全球貧困是世界上最棘手的問題之一。幾十年來,我們預設聰明且用意良善的人最終能夠改變貧窮國家的經濟軌跡。從教育到醫療保險、從發展基礎設施到肅清貪腐,這些很多問題的解決方案最後都淪於實驗或錯誤。實質上來說,這些計畫一概會先確定需要幫助的區域,提供大量的資源後,希望能夠隨著時間看到變化。
 
  但「希望」並不是一種有效的策略。
 
  克雷頓與其合著者揭示了現今許多人致力於解決貧困問題的核心悖論,即使心懷善意,但我們目前的解決方案並沒有讓現況變得更好,而且在某些情況下,更加劇了這些問題。至少有20個國家獲得了價值數十億美元的援助,現在卻更加貧窮了。
 
  作者應用他所熟知嚴謹且以理論做驅動的分析,提出了一種更好的方法。正確的創新不僅可以建立公司,更加可以建立起一個國家。此書定義了共同經濟發展模式的侷限性,即此模式往往都是自上而下以目標為取向所做出的努力,作者則另以創業和新市場創新為背景提供一個嶄新的框架來促進經濟增長。他們經由美國自身經濟發展的成功案例,例如Ford、Eastman Kodak和Singer縫紉機等,並展示出了以類似模式在日本、韓國、尼日利亞、盧旺達、印度、阿根廷和墨西哥等其他地區的運作方式。
 
  此書不僅是一本單純的商業書籍,對於那些想要讓世界變得更好的人來說,更是一本以經驗為基礎的行動號召!(文/博客來編譯)
 
  Clayton M. Christensen, the author of such business classics as The Innovator’s Dilemma and the New York Times bestseller How Will You Measure Your Life, and co-authors Efosa Ojomo and Karen Dillon reveal why so many investments in economic development fail to generate sustainable prosperity, and offers a groundbreaking solution for true and lasting change.
 
  Global poverty is one of the world’s most vexing problems. For decades, we’ve assumed smart, well-intentioned people will eventually be able to change the economic trajectory of poor countries. From education to healthcare, infrastructure to eradicating corruption, too many solutions rely on trial and error. Essentially, the plan is often to identify areas that need help, flood them with resources, and hope to see change over time.
 
  But hope is not an effective strategy.
 
  Clayton M. Christensen and his co-authors reveal a paradox at the heart of our approach to solving poverty. While noble, our current solutions are not producing consistent results, and in some cases, have exacerbated the problem. At least twenty countries that have received billions of dollars’ worth of aid are poorer now.
 
  Applying the rigorous and theory-driven analysis he is known for, Christensen suggests a better way. The right kind of innovation not only builds companies—but also builds countries. The Prosperity Paradox identifies the limits of common economic development models, which tend to be top-down efforts, and offers a new framework for economic growth based on entrepreneurship and market-creating innovation. Christensen, Ojomo, and Dillon use successful examples from America’s own economic development, including Ford, Eastman Kodak, and Singer Sewing Machines, and shows how similar models have worked in other regions such as Japan, South Korea, Nigeria, Rwanda, India, Argentina, and Mexico.
 
  The ideas in this book will help companies desperate for real, long-term growth see actual, sustainable progress where they’ve failed before. But The Prosperity Paradox is more than a business book; it is a call to action for anyone who wants a fresh take for making the world a better and more prosperous place.
