Topic: “Why Entrepreneurship Matters”

Summary of presentation:

Entrepreneurship is increasingly recognized as a key driver of economic growth, technological progress, and an improved quality of life. But what exactly do entrepreneurs do, and why does it matter? Peter Klein surveys and critiques contemporary thinking on the entrepreneur, from the perspective of the “Austrian school” of economics, and draws out implications for business practice, public policy, and education.
