Peter Klein points to this new work on The Political Economy of Entrepreneurship.I referenced this work earlier in relation to my experience at the RATIO Institute conference on entrepreneurship this past August.It is a very promising area of research.

Most true entreprenuers are usually not inclined to be concerned with politics. Most are driven by a service or product that they have in mind and want to profit from. This is the purest form of capitalism. The only thing they care about is getting government out of the way of their determination. people in politics believe the world evolves around them, entreprenuers believe the world evolves around ideas and determination.

Many entrepreneurs probably think they are doing their best for the community through their work but they also need to realise that the social "ecosystem" is under threat from a rising temperature of interventionism. They need to be politically involved as well (like all responsible citizens), bearing in mind that the only honourable reason for being in politics these days is to reduce to scope of politics.
