About this book

In this book the author investigates the role of entrepreneurship in the socio-economic development of emerging economies, highlighting its vital part in implementing development programs and policy initiatives. In search of efficient ways to stimulate entrepreneurial activities, Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies reviews recent academic research and accumulated policy implementation experiences to identify measures and instruments which can be adopted within emerging countries’ institutional context. Particular attention is given to three issues which have dominated the debate on the macroeconomic impact of entrepreneurship at the turn of the twenty-first century: job creation, innovation, and international trade and economic cooperation. In the final chapter the author offers a holistic model of entrepreneurship policy to address the particular needs of emerging economies, encompassing entrepreneurship policy, favourable institutional environments and pragmatic principles for implementing selective policy measures.

Reviews

“The monograph brings together diverse dimensions of entrepreneurship and thus opens new horizons of thought about the nature, scale and role of entrepreneurship in the socio-economic development. The chief merit of this book is that it demonstrates this abstract possibility in a single monograph, cogently and concisely. Not many books on the subject achieve this simple but desired objective.” (Su-Hyun Berg, Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Emerging Economies 4(2) 195–197 2018)

“Entrepreneurship in Emerging Economies by Jerzy Cieślik is, without doubt, an up-to-date, important publication that focuses on one of the most significant developmental forces of emerging economies: entrepreneurship.  An important aspect of the work is the fact that it goes well beyond an economic perspective, drawing on the sociological impact that entrepreneurship has on the emerging economies.” (Gorynia Marian & Mroczek-Dabrowska Katazyna, Journal of Management and Business Administration. Central Europe, Vol. 26, No. 2/2018, p. 121–124)

“Jerzy Cieślik is both scholar and practitioner and he looks at entrepreneurship development in the emerging economy context. Thanks to this book, faculty, administrators, policy makers and professionals now have the strategies tools and guidelines how to unleash entrepreneurial potential not just to catch up, but to leap ahead creatively both in practice and policies.” (Professor Dianne H.B. Welsh, Hayes Distinguished Chair in Entrepreneurship , The University of North Carolina Greensboro)

“The late 1980s marked the joint occurrence of the demise of the communist system and the return of entrepreneurship as a driver of economic growth. While entrepreneurship and its policy instruments have been widely studied for mature, developed economies, it hardly received scholarly attention in transition economies which were struggling their way out the communist era. The present book fills this gap with a brilliant compilation of academic insights and policy making experiences for a broad audience.” (Professor Roy Thurik, Erasmus School of Economics and Montpellier Business School)
