Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This volume contains an important set of papers by leading scholars explaining why entrepreneurship matters. By focusing on the role of entrepreneurship in innovation and economic growth and on how public policy can support this role, this book provides useful insights and an excellent overview. It will be a valuable source of information and inspiration for economists interested in entrepreneurship and growth for years to come." – Bo Carlsson, Case Western Reserve University

"Acs, Audretsch, and Strom have assembled an extraordinary group of contributors to share their insights into one of the most important – and previously neglected – policy topics of our time. Anyone concerned with economic growth over the long term ought to read it." – David M. Hart, George Mason University

"With globalisation under threat, and public expenditure under scrutiny, it is essential that the links between scientific research, technological innovation, entrepreneurship, and productivity growth are widely understood. This timely and authoritative book addresses this need. Re-focusing economic analysis from the accumulation of physical capital to the accumulation of knowledge capital, it restores entrepreneurship and small firm growth to their rightful place at the centre of economic policy debate about international competitiveness." – Mark Casson, University of Reading
