The Political Economy of Entrepreneurship

Elgar Research Reviews in Business

Magnus Henrekson and Robin Douhan

Political economy has been at the core of entrepreneurship research since its conception. Although the entrepreneur is frequently regarded as the key figure in the capitalist system, academic research in economics has for a long time overlooked the entrepreneur in its analyses of growth. In terms of political economy this neglect has been even more glaring. This research review discusses the most important contributions from a very scattered and disparate research field.
