The employment effects of new businesses : a survey of the current state of research
"Start-ups of new businesses can influence employment in different ways. The indirect effects, particularly improvements of competitiveness that may result from the entry of new competitors, are often more important than the employment in the new businesses. Recent empirical studies have shown that the effects of new businesses evolve over a longer period of time. Pronounced regional differences in the impact of new businesses on employment have been found. In most cases the effects of new business formation on employment are positive; however, they may also be negative under certain circumstances. This contribution identifies important research questions and draws conclusions for a policy aimed at stimulating entrepreneurship." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
