ENTERPRISE: An organization that combines scarce resources for the production and supply of goods and services. The term enterprise is generally used synonymously with other terms such as business, firm, and company. If a distinction exists, enterprise can be profit oriented, nonprofit, privately owned, or government controlled. Alternatively, the term enterprise might also be used more in reference to the production activity itself rather than the organization.

Topic: Factors <=PAGE BACK | PAGE NEXT=>

Factors of production, productive factors, or resources are the 'stuff' used to create wants-and-needs-satisfying goods.

Economists have four official groups, or categories, for our resources, for our factors of production:

  • Labor: human effort, both physical and mental.
  • Capital: machines, equipment, tools, and buildings.
  • Land: raw materials or natural resources.
  • Entrepreneurship: risk-taking organizers of production.

ENTREPRENEURIAL BEHAVIOR

A preference for changing the status quo over maintaining it based on relatively greater satisfaction generated by novel information over redundant information. Entrepreneurial behavior underlies the inclination to undertake invention and innovation, including the creation of something new as well as the distribution and adoption of the new throughout society. It is the behavior most likely exhibited by entrepreneurship. An alternative is managerial behavior, which is a preference for maintaining the status quo over changing it.
