About this product
- DescriptionThis book establishes a chrological trace of the entrepreneur as treated in ecomic literature in order to give a more wholesome perspective to contemporary writings and teachings on entrepreneurship. It focuses on the nature and role of the entrepreneur, and of entrepreneurship, as revealed in ecomic literature as early as the eighteenth century, when Richard Cantillon first coined the term 'entrepreneur'. The authors then trace how Joseph Schumpeter's perspective, among other's, on entrepreneurship came to dominate the world's understanding of the term. Due to Schumpeter's dominant influence, entrepreneurship has come to occupy a primary role in the theory of ecomic development. In this book Hebert and Link discuss various key topics including the German Tradition, the Austrian and the English School of thought as well as individuals such as Alfred Marshall and Jeremy Bentham. The historical survey also illustrates the tension that often exists between theory and practice and how it has been difficult for ecomic theory to assimilate a core concept that plays a vital role in social and ecomic change. Finally, the book exposes the many different facets of entrepreneurship as they have been perceived by some of the great ecomists throughout the ages.
