The Entrepreneur As American Hero

A snippet of Walter William's speech at Hilsdale College on entrepreneurship caught my eye and reminded me of the value entrepreneurs have in our society.

Capitalism is a worthy cause. There is no dichotomy between serving people and gaining a profit from doing so. In fact, you can often serve people better when charge the people you are serving. The alternative--in the real world--for providing a service that no one is asking for is a going-out-of-business sale.

When will American citizens demand better service from their public institutions?! Wait a second...isn't our government the nation's biggest employer? (Yep) Nevermind.

Tip of the hat to The Entrepreneurial Mind (Dr. Jeffrey R. Cornwall)
