About this product
- DescriptionThe book's central focus explores several myths associated with American entrepreneurship: the idea that small business owners are job creators ; that entrepreneurs are the backbone or engine of the ecomy; that entrepreneurship provides a path of ecomic mobility for immigrants, ethnic and racial mirities, and women; that the Horatio Algiers rags to riches story is possible for anyone willing to work hard. Instead, I provide a critical perspective that challenges these myths of American enterprise, arguing that successful entrepreneurship requires access to social and ecomic capital resources and support that are often distributed along the lines of race, class, and gender in the highly stratified American ecomy and society.
