J.A. Schumpeter (desde su biografía - 15)


““Capitalist evolution spells disturbance,” Schumpeter emphasizes again and again. “Capitalism is essentially a process of (endogenous) [sic] economic change.” In the absence of change, “capitalist society cannot exist.” If the capitalist engine stalls, the economic system will disintegrate. And the key that starts the engine and keeps it running is innovation: “Without innovations, no entrepreneurs; without entrepreneurial achievement, no capitalist returns and no capitalist propulsion. The atmosphere of industrial revolutions -of ‘progress'- is the only one in which capitalism can survive.” Hence there must be constant change, generated from within. “In this sense,” Schumpeter concludes, “stabilized capitalism is a contradiction in terms.””
