Visiting research scholar Neera Badhwar will discuss Virtue & Entrepreneurship during a lunch and learn sponsored by the Eudaimonia Institute.
Many writers have argued that free-market societies are more virtuous than any other (large-scale) society that has ever existed. Is this also true of entrepreneurs - the lifeblood of capitalist economies, those who come up with the ideas and innovations that, ultimately, create the things or services that many capitalist enterprises exist to provide? Are successful entrepreneurs necessarily virtuous, or at least principled? Would they be more successful if they were more virtuous? Or is the extent and depth of their virtue limited by the extent and depth of the virtue of other entrepreneurs, the justice of the institutions they live under, and the virtue of the other inhabitants of their society? Finally, how do entrepreneurs compare with government actors on the moral scale?
