Luxury and the Entrepreneur: A Story of Meissen Porcelain, Harlequins, and Creative Destruction

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

Based on fictional and non-fictional accounts, this chapter offers a narrative study of entrepreneurship in which the transgressive force of what Joseph Schumpeter calls ‘creative destruction’ is traced through the production of luxury objects emerging from the Meissen porcelain works. It is a narrative in which luxury and entrepreneurship are brought together, somewhat uneasily, under the forces of obsession, addiction, expertise, collecting, the affective power of things and civility.
