Herman Cain would establish America as a beacon for investors, entrepreneurs, inventors, creative business people, and all manner of upwardly mobile, ambitious men and women.

In the process, he and his plan would kindle decades of robust economic growth. He would make the next few decades a continuation of the American Century.
