Do entrepreneurs create jobs?
2000 (English)In: Small Business Economics, ISSN 0921-898X, E-ISSN 1573-0913, Vol. 14, no 2, 137-148 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Many countries support the creation of new firms. Such policy is based on the presumption that the total number of jobs increases when a person moves from unemployment or regular employment to self-employment. In this paper the link between self-employment and overall employment is analyzed. The empirical analysis, based on panel data of Swedish counties from 1976-1995, pays particular attention to simultaneity issues. The results suggest that self-employment may have a significant positive effect on overall employment.
