Subjectivism makes room for the creativity and autonomy of individual choice" (1985: 1). We seek to ground an economic theory of entrepreneurship in subjectivism, because we argue in the current paper that an entrepreneurial theory that dismisses the very idea of entrepreneurial discovery and creativity misses much of entrepreneurship in action. The paper proceeds as follows. First we offer a brief criticism of traditional neoclassical microeconomic theory and we note how the entrepreneur and entrepreneurial activity have vanished within this formalized neoclassical framework (Baumol, 1968).

T. Mahoney and S. C. Michael processes. In fact, in standard neoclassical equilibrium theory there is simply nothing for the entrepreneur to do. Returning to our earlier business example, to maintain, as neoclassical microeconomics theory does, that Bowerman was acting in ways that maximized his own utility function is no doubt true, but such an obviously tautological argument does not take us very far. For one thing, this knowledge claim fails to explain why Bowerman's utility function was not maximized sooner.
