On Entrepreneurship, Poverty and Abraham Kuyper: An Interview with Peter Heslam
It is often rare to find a scholar with a practitioner's heart. Peter Heslam, though, is as much 'into' ideas as he is practices. In fact, he says that "The best ideas are rooted in practice and the best practice is rooted in ideas"
In my wide ranging interview with Peter Heslam, we discuss his Cambridge multidisciplinary project, “Transforming Business,” the value of entrepreneurship, thinking about enterprise solutions to poverty, and the wisdom of Abraham Kuyper and John Wesley when helping us think about the current economic crisis and recovery in light of the value of thrift, magnanimity and magnificence. We close our conversation with him by offering some encouragement for emerging scholar types concerning how they might think about their academic pursuits 'beyond' academe.
