Start-up Firms in the Financial Crisis
AbstractStart-up firms are a key feature of the U.S. econoomy. Annually, start-ups account for about 20 percent of all companies. On average, they create 3 million jobs per year, somewhat more than 5 percent of total job creation. But, by 2009, in the depths of the Great Recession, the rate of job creation at start-ups has fallen significantly, to about 2 million jobs per year, as a result of fewer start-ups and/or fewer jobs at each start-up. Although job creation at start-ups should increase as the economy recovers, it is worth asking whether the financial crisis will have a lasting effect.
