Entrepreneurship Urged To Stimulate The Economy

Economists have been pointing to the growth in entrepreneurship and small business hiring as two ways the US economy can speed the recovery process. In his first ever Facebook town hall meeting, President Obama expanded upon this search for economic solutions as part of the White House's "Startup America" initiative.

Recent articles show that researchers not only support these notions, but also break them down for the nation and the world. Current entrepreneurial scholarship offers studies that provide avenues for future research and potential implications for economic development policy. Recently published articles cover such topics as immigrants in high-tech start-ups, lessons in entrepreneurial decision-marking, and more.
