Economics of Business Success
Being a successful business leader means skillfully understanding the choices people face and the decisions they make. Having insight into new and better ways of meeting human needs combined with the willingness to risk real resources is what builds a better, brighter future for everyone. But, business also gets a bad reputation; it is blamed for every manner of social ill, from poverty to inequality to declining prospects for the middle class. Is this reputation deserved? Are all business profits created equally? At this seminar for students 18-26 years of age you will:
- explore the ethics of business and the positive social role of the entrepreneur
- learn about the virtues of value creation
- acquire the tool of economic thinking that will help you see the world in a whole new way
The most common response from students after a FEE seminar is, “Why haven’t I heard about these ideas before?”
