Abstract

This essay explains how and why entrepreneurship has made important contributions to economic and social life inmodern industrialized countries. The increased role of entrepreuneurship in general and small firms in particular has come with a number of benefits spanning a wide range of economic and social dimensions, but also with some new problems and challenges. We discuss the role of the knowledge-based economy as a cause to this transition and present some calculations about the consequences of this transition.
