The Changing Global Economy and its Impact on International Entrepreneurship

The McGill International Entrepreneurship series

Edited by Hamid Etemad, Stefano Denicolai, Birgit Hagen and Antonella Zuchella

The Changing Global Economy and its Impact on International Entrepreneurship addresses different changes and challenges which small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) face in an economy where they need to compete at home and cannot refrain from participating in international markets. This volume presents a collection of 12 carefully selected chapters that highlight challenging real-world cases to illustrate a variety of difficult problems. The book presents an analytical framework with three levels of analysis – entrepreneurial level, firm level, and institutional level – to document comprehensive, realistic and experientially-based entrepreneurial initiatives, potent firm and public policy strategies with solid results.

Extract

These concluding remarks follow and build on the discussion of all previous chapters. It consists of four parts: the re-examination of the first three parts of the volume for highlighting their significant lessons and implications followed by the articulation of lessons and implications of materials presented earlier in the fourth part. However, before getting into the substance of the first part and re-examination of relevant chapters for their particular lessons and implications, a few thematic observations are presented to elaborate on previous discussions, in both the Introduction and the body of the volume, and also to outline a developmental path for the re-examination process of this chapter.
