520    A 2012 ECONOMIST BOOK OF THE YEAR Many of the United 
       States' most innovative entrepreneurs have been immigrants,
       from Andrew Carnegie, Alexander Graham Bell, and Charles 
       Pfizer to Sergey Brin, Vinod Khosla, and Elon Musk. Nearly
       half of Fortune 500 companies and one-quarter of all new 
       small businesses were founded by immigrants, generating 
       trillions of dollars annually, employing millions of 
       workers, and helping establish the United States as the 
       most entrepreneurial, technologically advanced society on 
       earth. Now, Vivek Wadhwa, an immigrant tech entrepreneur 
       turned academic with appointments at Duke, Stanford, Emory,
       and Singularity Universities, draws on his new Kauffman 
       Foundation research to show that the United States is in 
       the midst of an unprecedented halt in high-growth, 
       immigrant-founded start-ups. He argues that increased 
       competition from countries like China and India and US 
       immigration policies are leaving some of the most educated
       and talented entrepreneurial immigrants with no choice but
       to take their innovation elsewhere. The consequences to 
       our economy are dire; our multi-trillion dollar loss will 
       be the gain of our global competitors. With his signature 
       fearlessness and clarity, Wadhwa offers a concise 
       framework for understanding the Immigrant Exodus and 
       offers a recipe for reversal and rapid recovery.
