The Illusions of Entrepreneurship

There's a story about America that just about everybody knows: that we are a nation of boot-strapping entrepreneurs. Yeah, well, as it turns out, that's not so true. The truth about entrepreneurship doesn't much involve biotech or micro-processors. In fact, according to local professor and author Scott Shane, the typical entrepreneur works harder and makes less than those of us working 9 to 5 for someone else. Join us on the Sound of Ideas for a conversation about The Illusions of Entrepreneurship Today at 9 a.m.


Government/Politics, Health, Community/Human Interest, Technology, Making Change, Regional Economy/Business - Analysis and Trends


Scott Shane, Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University
