Publicity for Little Business on the Prairie

You can listen to the podcast of my recent interview regarding Little Business on the Prairie on South Dakota Public Broadcasting here.

I also discussed the book on KCPOs show "The Facts" last week and await the Vimeo link.

Augie also did a nice story here.

Sales appear to be picking up but they should be much higher. I can see national disinterest in South Dakota but does no one care about entrepreneurship? economic freedom? the future of the U.S. economy? the plight of Indians wallowing on reservations?

Here is a short blurb to get you fired up: South Dakota, the land of infinite variety, is one of America's few remaining economic bright spots. The population is growing and unemployment is below 3 percent because the state possesses one of the most economically free economies on the continent. Where the bison once roamed, entrepreneurs now ply their respective trades free from excessive taxation and government regulation. But South Dakotans have not always had it so good and to this day government stifles the economic activities of the state's Native Americans. Follow Augustana College business historian Robert E. Wright as he traces the epic story of South Dakota's discovery some 12,000 years ago to its founding booms in the 1870s and 1880s through the economic crises of the 1930s and 1980s to the challenges facing the state in the near future.
