As self-employment and entrepreneurship become increasingly
important in our modern economies, Simon C. Parker provides a
timely, definitive and comprehensive overview of the field. In this
book he brings together and assesses the large and disparate
literature on these subjects and provides an up-to-date overview of
new research findings. Key issues addressed include: the impact of
ability, risk, personal characteristics and the macroeconomy on
entrepreneurship; issues involved in raising finance for
entrepreneurial ventures, with an emphasis on the market failures
that can arise as a consequence of asymmetric information; the job
creation performance of the self-employed; the growth, innovation
and exit behaviour of new ventures and small firms; and the
appropriate role for governments interested in promoting
self-employment and entrepreneurship. This book will serve as an
essential reference guide to researchers, students and teachers of
entrepreneurship in economics, business and management and other
