Although George Washington is revered by most Americans, it is sometimes hard for them to relate to him. He is often seen as just the face on the dollar. But in his new book “George Washington, Entrepreneur: How Our Founding Father’s Private Business Pursuits Changed America and the World,” author John Berlau argues that Washington was just as creative in his own way as the “fun founders” such as Jefferson, Hamilton and Franklin. 

Berlau, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, will share his findings on how Washington revolutionized the early hemp, wheat, whiskey and mule industries. And how along the way, British taxes and overregulation helped convince him to join and lead the American Revolution.
