Building "Special Capital" for Entrepreneurial Development: Special Populations as Human Capital in the Context of Global Development
Walker, Gabriela
Policy Futures in Education, v8 n6 p697-708 2010
Ten to twelve percent of the world population is identified as having one or more types of disability. This ecodeme has been historically known to be discriminated, marginalized, and disempowered by the lack of access to resources and to education. This article discusses the importance of adding special capital to the global human capital in the context of today's demanding contexts. Nevertheless, people with disabilities have the potential to be entrepreneurs in different ways: firstly, as entrepreneurs of the self, and, secondly, as economic and social growth agents, and thus directly or indirectly contributing to various innovations and discoveries. The need for inclusive development, ecological education, ecoducation, entrepreneurship, and sustainable development calls for changes in the make-up and education of global biopower.
