The American and German Entrepreneur

Economic and Literary Interplay


Lucie Pfaff

Entrepreneurs and small business: are they in the avant-garde of innovation and economic growth? In Germany and the United States, policy-makers and economists have explored this question. Presenting their findings, this text also examines concerns of the social critic. Novelists in both countries have critiqued the business community. These views, reflecting public mood, portray cultural differences significant to the understanding of international relations.
Contents: An overview of American and German small businesses and their entrepreneurs provides insight through economic, social, and literary criticism.
