Publisher Description

Introduction Despite the recurring depiction of entrepreneurs as risk-taking super-heroes, the literature on entrepreneurship has seldom questioned whether this means that they always play the game by the rulebook. Notably absent from nearly all literature on entrepreneurship, that is, is the notion that these risk-takers might weigh up the costs of being caught and the level of punishments and then decide to do some or all of their business on an off-the-books basis. In this paper, therefore, the aim is to evaluate the degree to which entrepreneurs operate in the off-the-books economy in order to question the validity of the ideal-type representations of entrepreneurs as legitimate super-heroes that permeates the entrepreneurship literature.
