The Entrepreneur and Society

New Media  | 05 de septiembre de 2011  | Vistas: 11

Peter Klein expresses his conception of the term entrepreneur, as he states his belief regarding the misinterpretation of such among society. According to Klein, entrepreneurship has been left out of economy courses, creating a false view of firms and markets. He considers that the key to understand both entities lies in the decisions of individual entrepreneurs and not theories that base their results only in numbers and not decision-making individuals. Finally, Klein advises on the ways that states can contribute to encourage and improve entrepreneurship.
