Professor Robert Miller pursuing cross-sector economic development and keeping money and resources in Indian Country by reviving private entrepreneurship and developing human capital.
Enjoy this insightful and inspiring Native Business Virtual Summit one on one interview with Robert Miller who is a Professor at the Sandra Day O’Connor School of Law at Arizona State University and also Author of the best selling book, “Reservation Capitalism”.
Mr. Miller’s 2012 book “Reservation ‘Capitalism’: Economic Development in Indian Country”, underscores a persistent truth: that waiting for the federal government has not been a successful strategy for the past 200 years, and that’s not going to change in the future. Pivotal to self-sufficiency is being recession-proof. That requires pursuing cross-sector economic development and keeping money and resources in Indian Country by reviving private entrepreneurship and developing human capital.
In this interview with Native Business founder and Publisher, Gary Davis, Mr. Miller discusses how to build prosperous private sector economies on reservations — which demands the joint-intelligence and coordination of Tribal governments, Indian individuals, reservation communities, the United States, and non-profit organizations. Many other thought provoking ideas and insights are shared. Enjoy and please feel free to share this video with your network.
