When a new source of taxation is found it never means, in practice, that the old source is abandoned. It merely means that the politicians have two ways of milking the taxpayer where they had one before. -- H.L. Mencken

The Call of the Entrepreneur

Posted by Brianna Cardiff - July 19, 2007

While traveling in Europe, my friend remarked to me how amazing it was that 30 seconds after it started raining the street vendors had all switched from selling trinkets to selling umbrellas. I replied that entrepreneurs were indeed amazing. This can also be seen in the new documentary film The Call of the Entrepreneur put out by the Acton Institute. The film details the stories of three entrepreneurs coming from very diverse backgrounds. The Call of the Entrepreneur offers an alternative to the generally unflattering view of business often seen in the media today while investigating the moral perspective on entrepreneurship with its thrills, risks, successes and failures.
