Description In breaking with the policy regime of mercantilism, Richard Cantillon put forth a manuscript in 1730, wherein he produced the first treatise of economic theory. Key to this development was his new theory of entrepreneurship which allowed him to construct economic theories and concepts. Recent research has shown that he did not coin the term, but rather radically changed the meaning of an existing term, to its near opposite. This paper explores why he changed the meaning of the entrepreneur. The speculative answer is both theoretical and based on his life experience.
Al romper con el régimen político del mercantilismo, Richard Cantillon presentó un manuscrito en 1730, en el que produjo el primer tratado de teoría económica. La clave de este desarrollo fue su nueva teoría del emprendimiento, que le permitió construir teorías y conceptos económicos. Investigaciones recientes han demostrado que no acuñó el término, sino que cambió radicalmente el significado de un término existente, a sucasi opuesto. Este artículo explora por qué cambió el significado del emprendedor. La respuesta especulativa es tanto teórica como basada en su experiencia de vida.

Uma de suas peças centrais é sua nova teoria do empreendedorismo, que lhe permitiu construir teorias e conceitos econômicos. Pesquisas recentes mostram que ele não cunhou o termo, mas que inverteu radicalmente o significado do termo existente. A resposta especulativa é tanto teórica como baseada em sua experiência de vida.
