This article by Robert Nelson was published in the Asian Survey Journal in 1977. This was one of the first articles of its kind that focussed on introducing entrepreneurship into educational systems. The article argues that entrepreneurship education is not the same as business education and that an increased focus on entrepreneurial opportunities in educational systems not only lead to an increase in the number of entrepreneurs over time, but are means to stimulate creativity and innovation that are all necessary to create better communities, better nations and a better world. This article written more than 30 years ago is still relevant and touches at the heart of the debate about the benefits of entrepreneurship education today.  Robert Nelson is also one of the key authors of the Know About Business (KAB) programme of the International Labour Organization.
