Entrepreneurship and Economic Development: Policy Design

  • Wim Naudé

Abstract

The aim of this volume was to take stock of the new insights that are emerging on the role of entrepreneurship in economic development, and to identify the challenges that will continue to drive research in the future. An important challenge, raised in particular in Chapters 8, 9 and 11, is the design of policies that will encourage productive entrepreneurship. Governments and development agencies across the world are devoting substantial resources to encourage entrepreneurship. This is especially evident in the small business and private sector development support programmes promoted by departments of trade and industry, and development agencies within the UN and the World Bank, to name but a few.
