Emergence of the entrepreneurial society

Contents:

Author Info

  • Audretsch, David B.

Abstract

Once dominated by a managed economy, the United States--and, eventually, the entire world--came to acknowledge the incredible power of the entrepreneurial movement of the 1990s. The entrepreneurial society refers to places where entrepreneurship has emerged as a focal point for economic growth, sustainable job creation, and competitiveness in global markets. This article explains why and how the entrepreneurial society emerged, and why it is key to taking advantage of the opportunities afforded by globalization by enhancing the innovation prowess of a nation.
