The Self-Made Myth Media Coverage

April 05, 2012

Original publication: Various Outlets

Date of publication: February 22, 2012

UFE's new book busts the myth of the self-made man. Our aim with The Self-Made Myth is to stop the spread of misinformation about wealth and job creation. We urge a more honest national conversation about all that makes business and individual success possible—including our collective role through government—so our public policies may better reflect our priorities as a nation.

The book is being covered online, in print and in broadcast media. Scroll down to view select coverage. The list will be updated as new coverage emerges.
