Publisher Description

Paper Belt on Fire is the unlikely account of how two outsiders with no experience in finance―a charter school principal and defrocked philosopher―start a venture capital fund to short the higher education bubble.

Against the contempt of the education establishment, they discover, mentor, and back the leading lights in the next generation of dropout innovators and in the end make their investors millions.

Can such a madcap strategy help renew American creativity? Who would do such a thing?

This story is the behind-the-scenes romp of one team that threw educational authorities into a panic. It fuses real-life personal drama with history, science, and philosophy to show how higher education and other institutions must evolve to meet the dire challenges of tomorrow.
