A new paper on “cultural entrepreneurship”

sehr_coverIn a blog post by Peter G. Klein, I found out about this very interesting paper on “cultural entrepreneurship” by economic historian Joel Mokyr published in the Scandinavian Economic History Review.

As the post’s author points, the paper suggests that  […] “Their [cultural entrepreneurs] function is much like entrepreneurs in the realm of production: individuals who refuse to take the existing technology or market structure as given and try to change it and, of course, benefit personally in the process. Much like other entrepreneurs, the vast bulk of them make fairly marginal changes in our cultural menus, but a few stand out as having affected them in substantial and palpable ways.”
