The objective here is to establish the proposition that creative entrepreneurship gives rise to a market order which is optimally adjusted to facilitate the introduction and the diffusion of innovations, particularly those that take the form of new markets, new organizational schemes, new management devices and new methods and means of doing business.

The interpretation they offer is that this method showed a high degree of operational flexibility and institutional adaptability and that it is these two properties that explain its marked tenacity over time.
