Institutional determinants of growth-aspiration entrepreneurship

Karaagac, Zuleyha (2014) Institutional determinants of growth-aspiration entrepreneurship. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The thesis is a country-level study on the institutional and human capital determinants of growth-aspiration entrepreneurial activity. By using country-level panel-data analysis, the study is to our knowledge the first to test to what extent country-level human capital accumulation is associated with the prevalence of growth-aspiration entrepreneurship. Overall findings of the study suggest that there are different effects of the institutional determinants on the prevalence of growth-aspiration entrepreneurship in developing countries and developed countries. The study also found that country-level human capital moderates the effects of the institutional environment.
