Do Entrepreneurs Have a Responsibility to Society? (Daily Video)

In the following one minute video, Dutch economist and philosopher Ingrid Robeyns shares some brief thoughts on the intersection of entrepreneurship and society.

Noting that entrepreneurs are important to society, Robeyns has two tips for entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs:

1. If you choose to start a business, address an issue that is an important challenge facing society over the next decade.

2. If you are successful, use that opportunity to give something back to society.

Check out some of the writings of Ingrid Robeyns, at the egalitarian super-blog Crook Timber.
