Selected aspects of various types of risky business investments (in start-up ventures, innovations, technological development) are explored in this paper. These types of investments / expenditures by their nature are risky; though offer a high pay-off. It has been found that business investments may be compared to gambling: both are governmental policy issues. It is shown that investment in high risk business ventures is positively related to pro-gambling tendencies, as well as with uncertainty avoidance, ease of doing business, and pro-entrepreneurship attitudes. The exploration of this issue is expected to provide a starting point for discussion about the governmental role in promoting innovation. (original abstract)
