Abstract

Historians and radical economists teach us that the history of entrepreneurs is the history of their persecution. Marginalization and deviance are said to play an important role in producing entrepreneurship and successful economic initiative. According to this view, individuals and groups who are looked down upon tend to create a reassuring atmosphere among themselves in order to overcome or discount the exclusion suffered. Every little achievement will be met with disproportionate commendation and with collective joy, which in turn inculcate an increasing need for further achievements. Exclusion, in brief, may become a source for the development of talents that lead to innovation.
