Abstract

Studie naar de relatie tussen het aantal zelfstandige ondernemers en economische groei. Onderzocht wordt het bestaan van een lange termijn relatie tussen het aantal ondernemers en de fase van economische ontwikkeling. Daarnaast wordt ingegaan op het feit dat zelfstandige ondernemerschap aantrekkelijker wordt doordat een daling van de economische groei leidt tot hoge werkloosheid. Lage werkloosheid stimuleert mensen, die het moeilijk hebben om een baan te vinden of wiens cariëre bedreigt wordt in bestaande ondernemingen, om zelfstandige ondernemer te worden. Dit leidt tot een omgekeerde effect van de invloed van economische groei op het aantal zelfstandige ondernemers per beroepsbevolking.
