Abstract

Using cross-sectional analysis with new data on entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship, we test the hypothesis of de Soto (1994, 2005) that the right of property is required for hatching entrepreneurship. Given our econometric estimates and our sensitivity tests, the right to property is essential to entrepreneurship. Countries with a higher entrepreneurship are those who respect property rights..
