Enterprise & Society offers a forum for research on the historical relations between businesses and their larger political, cultural, institutional, social, and economic contexts. The journal aims to be truly international in scope. Studies focused on individual firms and industries and grounded in a broad historical framework are welcome, as are innovative applications of economic or management theories to business and its context.
What’s new from Enterprise & Society

Editor Andrew Popp introduces some key content from the latest issue:

“In Volume 17, Issue 4 (December 2016) I was delighted to be able to publish “The Entrepreneurial Multiplier Effect” by two of the most distinguished and influential members of our discipline, Lou Galambos and Franco Amatori. Their synthetic essay offered a sweeping and compelling account of the entrepreneurial dimensions of three successive industrial revolutions.

It had always been planned to make this essay the lead piece in a symposium, in which it would be followed by two comments and a response from Professors Galambos and Amatori. Increasingly complex logistics repeatedly thwarted those plans and, in the end, the central essay was published as a standalone article. I am therefore delighted to at last present a partial realization of those original plans, in the form of a comment from R. Daniel Wadhwani and a rejoinder from Galambos and Amatori. I am sure that together these three pieces will stimulate much interest and debate”
