A merchant banker. A failing dairy farmer. A refugee from Communist China. One risked his savings. One risked his farm. One risked his life.
"The Call of the Entrepreneur Study Guide" examines several core themes of the documentary including the pernicious effects of zero-sum-game thinking, the role of entrepreneurs in creating new wealth, the risk-taking element of enterprise, and the role of limited government, property rights, and the rule of law, and free markets in unleashing the wealth-creating capacity of entrepreneurs.
The Study Guide touches on some topics that are beyond the scope of the film, in particular the role of Judeo-Christian thought in the rise of capitalism and the lessons that the Bible offers for the entrepreneur as entrepreneur. It includes a discussion of human beings as "co-creators" made in the image of God.
