A Different (and, Finally, Useful) Theory of Entrepreneurship

Neoclassical economics oversimplifies; it assumes very few elements (capital, labor, and time), and it assumes direction towards a state of equilibrium. Starting from and developing the contribution of Ludwig M. Lachmann (1906-1990), this knowledge capsule shifts us into a more realistically complex pattern in which capital disequilibrium, unknowable future, heterogenous and oriented time, subjective expectations and institutions are staged, each with its role: the result is a more realistic model of entrepreneurship.
