How do entrepreneurs imagine the future? How does entrepreneurship shape the course of capitalism? This course introduces students to a variety of different forms of entrepreneurial imagination and its relationship to societal context and change.
It covers (a) the main “big picture” developments that have shaped entrepreneurship over the past two centuries; (b) the intellectual traditions that have grappled with the nature of entrepreneurship and its role in society; and (c) the ways in which understanding big market transformations over time can profit entrepreneurs today.
