This book provides an analysis of the existing economic dynamics
and factors contributing to entrepreneurship in China. Featuring
contributions from prominent authors such as Zoltan Acs and Jian
Gao, it first poses a theoretical question of whether
entrepreneurship exists in China and, if so, the extent and form it
takes. This book also examines whether the nature of
entrepreneurship in China differs from that elsewhere. Following
this investigation, empirical tests and analyses focus on important
issues such as: What is the special value of entrepreneurship in
China? Does entrepreneurship in China drive economic growth like it
does in other more market-oriented economies? What is
entrepreneurship in China like? What is its history, nature,
environment, and what are some of the underlying diversities or
challenges it is facing? Assuming entrepreneurship in China is
important to economic growth, how can public policy help to enhance
the entrepreneurship milieu in China? Finally, based on the
empirical findings and potential policy implications, future
directions of investigation are suggested.
