Entrepreneurship in the UK
Entrepreneurship in the UK examines the causes and consequences of changes in the incidence of entrepreneurship in the United Kingdom by focusing on the characteristics of the self-employed and how self-employment has changed over time. Entrepreneurship in the UK is comprehensive and complete in its review of: time series trends in self-employment in the UK and elsewhere; the earnings of the self-employed with those of wage and salary workers; the characteristics of the self-employed; econometric analyses of the determinants of self-employment and comparisons with US + EU; the importance of liquidity constraints and the role of inheritances and gifts and rising house prices in overcoming credit constraints; macro-economic consequences and correlates of self-employment. Entrepreneurship in the UK identifies the characteristics of the self-employed and explains how and why their numbers have changed over time.
