Abstract

Economists often praise entrepreneurs' merits since they challenge market routine and give life to capitalism. But, paradoxically (?), the entrepreneur holds a marginal place in economic progress historical approaches. Is he a deus ex machina who intervenes when economists do not know how (or do not want) to reveal the origins of social change dynamics. The fact remains that the enterprise creator benefits from opportunities deriving from market imperfections and that he gets richer while slipping in activities left by the immense mechanism of the economy merchant socialisation. The margin which lets this social agent emerge is made of large enterprise deconcentration process and also the flexible employment and public service privatisation State policies.
