“Billions Lost: The American Tech Crisis and The Road Map to Change”, Hilarie T. Gamm

“Billions Lost: The American Tech Crisis and The Road Map to Change”, Hilarie T. Gamm

Hilarie T. Gamm pulls the curtain back on the wizards of America’s technology industry to simplify the current American technology landscape for every reader.

“Billion’s Lost: The American Tech Crisis and the Road Map to Change” is an explosive, must-read about the inner workings of the U.S. tech industry. The impact of H-1B Visas, offshore labor, education, and globalism are exposed as Gamm educates the masses on the history of U.S. technology and the crisis that was Y2K.  By simplifying political science, economics, and civics concepts, Gamm connects the dots on the causes and effects of our tech industry downturn, painting an eye-opening portrait of what the future holds if corrective action isn’t taken.

More than a political or social science commentary, “Billion’s Lost” finds its place among the best historical and political non-fiction works for its clear explanation of how offshoring millions of U.S. technology and engineering jobs opened a gateway placing our economy, national security, and educational system at risk.
Although the ramifications are dire, all is not lost. The book concludes with a powerful chapter, “The Road Map to Change,” a list of 20 national, actionable ideas that can turn things around and return growth, prosperity and technological prowess back to the United States of America.
