Mega-Entrepreneur Says Mexico´s Economy Will Boom

“A great science fiction detective story” – Ian Watson, author of The Universal Machine
Luck and Death at the Edge of the World

Days until the election: 82

Gary Hoover is an unusual guy.

He´s serial entrepreneur, a wealthy man several times over.  One of his companies, Hoover’s, Inc., is one of the largest business research companies on the internet and was sold to Dun & Bradstreet for $119 million in 2003.

Unlike the stereotype of a mega-entrepreneur, however, he´s a staunch supporter of the liberal arts and loves — no, adores — books.  He started his own book megastore (later sold to Barnes & Noble for $40 million) and his personal collection runs to 50,000 volumes.

He´s a creative man with a restless mind and a proven track record of finding the trend hidden inside the data.  And what he´s saying now is: if you pay attention to anything, pay attention to Mexico.

Like Jim O’Neill, the financial analyst who coined the term BRIC as a label for the booming economies of Brazil, Russia, India, and China, he sees Mexico as a future economic powerhouse.  (For details on O’Neill´s views, see the post A New Economic Boom in Mexico? The Guy Who Brought You the Term “BRIC” Says Yes.)

Hoover has made his case in an interview to the business publication Inc. Magazine and he´s made it live — at length and in detail — at South by Southwest in 2011.

If you want to understand the economic future of Mexico, don´t miss it.
