Drawing on 75 years of Gallup studies and his own perspective as the company's chairman and CEO, Jim Clifton explains why jobs are the new global currency for leaders. More than peace or money or any other good, the business, government, military, city, and village leaders who can create good jobs will own the future.

The problem is that leaders don't know how to create jobs, especially in America. What they should do is recognize that the world is in a war for jobs. It seems that leadership has lost the will to win, especially in America, but this is a competition for our lives.

To win, leaders need to compete. Everyone does. The public school system needs to inculcate kids with the knowledge they'll need to compete in the jobs war. The business community needs to double the psychological engagement of workers so that it can compete with cheaper labor. The healthcare system must stop wasting the resources that we need to spend on job competition. Society needs to realize that entrepreneurs, not government, are the source of new jobs and put all its energy behind them. Perhaps most importantly, leaders need to recognize universities, mentors, and especially cities as a supercollider for job creation.

If that can be done - and it can be done, leaders have done it before - new good jobs will result. There's not moment to waste: the war has already begun.

    " I wanted to recommend this book to any aspiring entrepreneurs out there. If you have some free time, read this short message from the chairman of the Gallup corporation about why entrepreneurs are needed the most now, not governments or scientists. Gallup, a huge global consulting company in Omaha, has recently found that for the first time that peoples' number 1 want, more than faith and family, is a good job. Which ever country provides the best jobs, wins. Unfortunately, America is fighting an uphill battle, but using the research of his firm, he lists problems that we must deal with as a society and how entrepreneurs are the best weapon. "

    " While the overall point is solid, it is weird that someone with access to so much data uses little of it to support his argument. Feels biased at times and doesn't recognize the interconnectedness of issues. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert Chapman | 2/4/2014

    " I love it when I pick a book because it looks interesting and then enjoy it so much I cannot put it down. This book is fantastic, depressing, but none the less a must read for everyone. The author's style is simple and to the point, and he does not waste space, he just nails the facts and presents clear findings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry | 12/19/2013

    " Excellent perspective of our future economy backed by 100 years of Gallup research. Very positive outlook if education, labor, economic development "thinkers" take action now. So good, once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeana | 12/12/2013

    " The data was interesting and many of his points were well supported. Some of it felt too idealistic without specific recommendations to carry it out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 11/27/2013

    " very quick read - so many great points in this book and interesting numbers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Russ | 11/24/2013

    " A seriously disturbing look into the erosion of our economy in the immediate future. The Coming Job Wars depicts competition for good jobs, on a global scale while exposing why America is unprepared. Recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Catherine | 11/23/2013

    " A must read of info not mentioned often to each other! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 11/3/2013

    " Quick read with compelling stats; global perspective but emphasizes local efforts. Important ideas, certainly worth the time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 9/12/2013

    " I liked this book. Clifton presented his arguments reasonably. However, I think that this could have been condensed down to a great magazine article. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark Brightenburg | 8/7/2013

    " s you would expect from Clifton, the stats and case he is made about the future of "good jobs" is compelling. What I particular enjoyed, however, were his ideas about "behavioral economics" as compared to traditional economics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 7/27/2013

    " Love the data in this book. So much out there is FUD. there's a lot if stark truth in this book but a lot of optimism and pro-America "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen Womack | 4/16/2013

    " Relevant, to the point, and solution orientated. Definitely worth the quick read; this coming jobs war effects us all and is arguably already here. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bank | 2/24/2013

    " I agree with the description ; could not say it better, except we better get moving fast. Especially in educating our children to perform and compete for jobs . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aaron Lozano | 2/21/2013

    " Well written and very interesting, I found very little of it to apply to my future profession. I would recommend this to people involved in business, however I did not see much applicability to me outside of one chapter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy Ramsey | 2/18/2013

    " This is a must read book for anyone looking to the future of America and the prospects for job creation in the new economy. Easy to read and packed with solid data and solutions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/25/2013

    " Excellent - clear, concise economic development perspectives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Salinas | 1/23/2013

    " Excellent insight based on real data, useful to anyone in any station. We all have our role to play. It was a fast read, but deep enough I really need to read it again, at least two or three more times. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David McDanal | 1/9/2013

    " Excellent quick read from the chairmen of Gallup on what the US needs to do to be competitive. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Meeks | 1/9/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Norma Huerta | 11/27/2012
