Old business practices are indeed a major problem in recruiting. But while people whine about the entrepreneurs, it’s important to remember that there is no such thing as a pure entrepreneur. It’s a word that’s an economic construct, used specifically to delineate the difference between the capitalist function, and money earned via that route, vs the entrepreneurial function which is risk assumption. Colloquially I understand how it’s used as a word, however that clouds an important issue: many of the regulations which are currently strangling these entrepreneurs were lobbied for by previous self proclaimed entrepreneurs. There are two types of entrepreneurs: private and political, and in the real world they’re always a mix of both types. As such, fuck ’em. They dug their own graves.
