I need to write a research paper for my social entrepreneurship class. The professor wrote the following:
œDevelop a meaningful applied research question on a topic of current importance to the field of global social entrepreneurship, and then answer that question through a concerted research effort that examines both sides of the particular question and then offers a recommendation for resolution or action.
For example, an interesting research question for you and your assignment partner to consider might be:
œShould the chief executive or senior leader of a non-profit social enterprise be able to earn a salary that is equivalent to that of a CEO of a high growth business (e.g., $500,000 or more in annual salary earned by several well known social entrepreneurs)?
œShould the patent laws be changed on a global basis to prevent the patent holder from blocking competitive offerings of humanitarian relief products especially in the context of a crisis such as famine?
Or, a third example:
œShould the leading nations of the developing world (for example, India and Mexico) regulate the microfinance industry to cap interest rates, mandate transparent loan terms and prohibit public trading of shares?
