Call for Papers : Are you researching on the dark side, unproductive, unethical, destructive crime fraud, corruption, deception, manipulation, misconduct etc, in entrepreneurship research?
Please consider submitting to our special issue on
"Dubious, Destructive, or Decisive? Spotting, Avoiding, and Rehabilitating the Dark Sides of Entrepreneurship"
to Small Business Economics: An Entrepreneurship Journal
Entrepreneurship straddles positive and negative inputs, outputs, and outcomes. The predominant focus on positive aspects of entrepreneurial pursuit has overlooked mounting evidence of unproductive (Audretsch et al., 2021), unethical, and destructive actions, such as financial crime, customer fraud, investor deception (Desai & Acs, 2016; Scheaf & Wood, 2021; Antony et al., 2017), and other types of misconduct that erodes societal and environmental values (Anand et al., 2023; Haans & Oever, 2021). Since this so called "dark side" (Shepherd, 2019) was first acknowledged several decades ago (de Vries, 1985; Baumol, 1990), significant gaps remain in theorizing and modelling how entrepreneurs choose, switch, or sustain negative ends and means (Hainz, 2018; Luca & Zervas, 2016; Theoharakis et al., 2021). We encourage inquiries that explicitly foreground the causes, contingencies, and remedies of the dark side of entrepreneurship and welcome answers on whether, when, and why entrepreneurial experiences and endeavours may tip and turn from the bright to the dark side or vice-versa.
