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.
