An Entrepreneur supplies risk capital as a risk taker, and monitors and controls the activities of his business. The Entrepreneur is usually a sole proprietor, a partner, or the one who owns the majority of shares in an incorporated venture.
NOTE: The entreprenuer risks HIS OWN capital and assumes 100% of the risk of his decisions. Someone who gets money from the government/taxpayer in any way shape or form is not an entrepreneur, because it is not this person’s own money he’s risking. It is the taxpayer’s money, taken by force. If you are not risking your own money, you are NOT an entrepreneur! You are a poser.
The poser gets plugged into the political process going for grants that the government has decided are "Winners." Solar is an example of the government’s current favored winner. If the poser succeeds, he gets his reward. If he fails, the taxpayer takes the loss. That’s "privatizing success."
It’s much different for the Entrepreneur. By risking his own money, and by working to produce a product that either succeeds or fails in the free market, the entrepreneur reaps one of two things: Loss of his own money if he fails; OR reward for his personal risk if he succeeds.
Unless you live in the world of Obama. In Obama’s World, the Entreprenuer’s personal loss is not "shared" with others. It is ONLY his reward that he is forced to share with others.
Welcome to the World of Obama and the DEATH of the Entrepreneurial spirit in America.
