An American Girl in Washington

Are you part of the Misfit Economy?

Posted in Travel by AGinDC on 13 March 2012

You can be!

Across the globe, diverse innovators operating in the black, gray, and informal economies are developing solutions to a myriad of challenges. Far from being “deviant entrepreneurs” that pose threats to our social and economic stability, these innovators display remarkable ingenuity, pioneering original methods and best practices that we can learn from and apply to formal markets in urgent need of change.

The Misfit Economy is a book that explores stories of incredible human resilience, self-sufficiency and teeming innovation. It will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2013.

Alexa and Kyra are the girls writing this book and they are AMAZING. (Alexa is another American Girl in Washington!) and amazing women who I couldn’t respect more. They are right now hosting a fundraiser on Kickstarter to raise the money to travel the world finding the most awesomest misfits out there!

The added bonus? I’ll be launching my own crowdfunding campaign soon so this is puurrrrrfect practice for you!

Go! Donate! Share the love!
