recently held an event titled:
PROACTIVE POLICY FOR ENCOURAGING ENTREPRENEURS: THE LAW AND INNOVATIVE BUSINESS
Tuesday, November 13, 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center
1015 15th Street, N.W., 6th Floor, Washington, D.C. 20005
Viktor Mayer-Schoenberger, Associate Professor of Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, discussed the value of proactive economic policies in fostering innovation. Mayer-Schoenberger argues that the traditional role of government in business support—contract enforcement and protection of intellectual property rights—is reactive and restrictive, doing little to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship. He suggests a variety of forward-looking policies to foster entrepreneurial growth.
Benjamin Hallen, Assistant Professor of Strategy at University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business, commented, and Diana Furchtgott-Roth, Director of Hudson Institute’s Center for Employment Policy, moderated this event.
