Does Corruption Discourage Entrepreneurship?
SHARE THIS PAGE
Corruption discourages entrepreneurship because it undermines fair competition. This is the premise under which the study was undertaken considering (i) nascent entrepreneurship collected from Global Entrepreneurship Monitor and (ii) entry rate defined as the number of new firms divided by the total number of the previous year’s registered businesses from the World Bank Group Entrepreneurship Survey. Evidence presented in the paper show that entrepreneurial activity tends to be more vibrant in less corrupt countries.
