Today 23 million Britons invest £27 billion in Premium Bonds, compared to £5 bn in 1995. Total savings at National Savings have increased by £6 bn to £69 bn in just over 2 years. How did he do this?

Successful innovators are not foolhardy. They are in many ways conservative. They are not focused on risk, but on opportunity and its potential for exploitation. Although some innovations do arise from a flash of genius, the successful ones tend to be born of a conscious, purposeful search for opportunity which involves taking a hard look at customer preferences, the way the industry currently competes, and the way a business is configured. Sometimes the new ideas, the new opportunities start small, but some are ultimately transformational.

Much of the literature refers to the economic role of entrepreneurs. In creating wealth, they add value, providing employment and contributing through taxation to the provision of social benefits. But this is a restricted view given that, by our broader definition, there are some entrepreneurs whose motives are more social than economic. The received wisdom is that we need more entrepreneurs to lead the economy, and more enterprise to liven up all industry. Small firms create economic development, and there is an implicit assumption of a positive connection between jobs and entrepreneurship.
