Summary:At a time when governments all over the world look to entrepreneurship as a way to increase the wealth and well-being of their countries, The Dynamics of Entrepreneurship examines the causes of differences in the levels of entrepreneurship between individuals, the factors that explain variations in the type and quantity of entrepreneurship at aggregate level, and the macroeconomic implications of entrepreneurship. Using the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) as a basis for the empirical data, the book brings together contributions from leading scholars to provide a comprehensive overview of current scholarship on entrepreneurial activity in three sections: - the universal and systematic aspects of entrepreneurial behavior in human beings regardless of context - the alternative entrepreneurial contexts and the way in which they motivate individuals to act entrepreneurially or discourage them from doing so - how entrepreneurial activity influences individuals' living standards at the aggregate level. The book concludes by summarizing its contribution to existing literature, with particular attention to the policy implications and the ongoing debate on entrepreneurship. -- Book Description.
