The end of Part I’s theoretical discussions seems the appropriate place to present the model of democratic politics that will be used, often more implicitly than explicitly, in Part II’s assessment of the prevalence of entrepreneurial-style, pioneering political leadership. This Leadership- Evolutionary (LE) model is based on Schumpeter’s leadership model of democracy (described in Chapter 1) but also retains his quasi-economic approach of using comparisons and analogies with economic activities. Thus instead of referring to pioneering leadership, the LE model uses the terms political entrepreneur and political entrepreneurship.
