Entreprenöriell optimism?

Jag blir långsamt mer nyfiken på forskning om entreprenörskap. Här verkar vara ett intressant resultat:

Existing empirical evidence suggest that entrepreneurs are optimists, [...] We first show that entrepreneurs have more favorable beliefs about nationwide conditions. We then show that these entrepreneurs’ beliefs are relatively good predictors of the future. We conclude from these two findings that entrepreneurs are less biased towards optimism than non-entrepreneurs are biased towards pessimism
