Publisher's Summary

Welcome to Forbes for December 5th, 2011 from Audible. This edition contains seven feature articles.

In the cover story: “Can Venture Capitol Save the World?” Jacqueline Novogratz and her Acumen Fund attack the hunan race's oldest problems with a groundbreaking model: fund noble startups and let altruistic capital do the rest.

Also, “Meet America's Most Promising Company” - This year's winner is Smashburger. And, yes, we really did need another patty point.

We'll also tell you How the World's Top-Selling Vaccine could save thousands of lives and billions in hospital costs--and fix what ails Pfizer's finances.

Next, “The Best States for Business” - The economy continues to sputter, but western states like Utah and Colorado have maintained strong business climates.

Then, “Splash Landing: Inside Thailand's Tech Manufacturing Crisis” - It was Oct. 14, and Alan Lim's morning meeting had just begun when the call came from the factory: “The waters are coming in.”

Followed by, “Crony Capitalism? Thanks, Big Government” - What we need most are leaders who can deliver that hope we were promised four years ago.

And in our final story, “China: The Time for Noblesse Oblige” - Lesson worth remembering.
