podcast script: Strauss, Levi (entrepreneur)

This assignment is essentially a research assignment that provides you a little opportunity for creativity. After you have researched the life of your chosen entrepreneur, write a script for an interview with your historic entrepreneur. You will write both the questions that are asked by the interviewer and the responses that your entrepreneur would have likely given. Your interview should explain the characteristics or activities that qualify your historical figure to be labeled ‘entrepreneur’, the entrepreneur’s contribution(s) and its (their) economic relevance, the state of the economy that facilitated the entrepreneurship, and the short-run and long-run (if relevant) impact of this entrepreneur. This script should be documented as rigorously as any research paper.
