About the Author

Felix R. Livingston is professor of economics and director of the Honorable Entrepreneurship Program at Flagler College.


At a time when so many are tempted to use the power of government to achieve their personal ends, Felix Livingston's fine new book is an important reminder of the importance of keeping entrepreneurship honorable. Livingston draws upon the full western tradition to explain the logic and virtue of entrepreneurship that springs from persons of character serving others through innovation. -- Gerald A Gunderson, Trinity College
In this clever and insightful book, Livingston uses enlivening stories and arguments from western philosophy to buttress the claim that entrepreneurs can and should be ethical stalwarts, providing meaning and virtue to society. This is an exciting new way to reach business students. A flourishing society surely needs the wisdom in this book. -- Jonathan B Wight, author of Ethics in Economics: An Introduction to Moral Frameworks
