Acton Institute's 'Call of the Entrepreneur' Documentary to Premiere in Grand Rapids
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., May 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "The Call of the Entrepreneur," a new documentary from the Acton Institute, will premiere May 17 in Grand Rapids. The 60-minute work tells the stories of three businessmen: a dairy farmer in Michigan, a New York merchant banker, and a refugee from Communist China. In their own way, each of the entrepreneurs demonstrates how business creates wealth, raises living standards and promotes the common good of society. Iain Murray, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the Acton documentary was "the best visual exposition of the moral basis of entrepreneurialism and free enterprise I have ever seen." In the documentary, the Rev. Robert A. Sirico, president of the Acton Institute, joins Michael Novak, George Gilder and other experts in exploring how entrepreneurs shape our world. The commentators in the documentary explain how creative business people demonstrate, in their own way, a specific calling as the image bearers of God. As a "subcreator," the man or woman who engages in a new business enterprise participates in the free creativity of the Creator. Despite the common caricature, the entrepreneur is no greedy miser and must, ultimately, be directed toward the wants and needs of others Following the Grand Rapids event, the "Call of the Entrepreneur" will be premiered in a number of cities, including New York, Washington, London and Hong Kong.
