Abstract

While many different types of entrepreneurship have been identified in the literature, each type shares one feature in common – the profit motive. Entrepreneurship is generally seen as contributing to the economic development of a country. However, it will be argued that entrepreneurship can be used for social policy, with economic policy a secondary issue. The discussion uses the United Arab Emirates as an example of the potential use of entrepreneurship as social policy.
