Israel M. Kirzner

Only in a society where entrepreneurs are free to make errors, can we expect an outpouring of entrepreneurship to lift its economy to new, hitherto unglimpsed, heights of prosperity. Only where potential entrepreneurs are free to follow the lure of profits as they see them, will there be the unleashing of entrepreneurial vision, daring, and judgment that creates profits in fact-and in so doing, creates new, more valuable ways of utilizing resources.

— Israel M. Kirzner, “The Economic of Errant Entrepreneurs”
