November 3, 2005, 9:30 - 11:30 a.m. - Hudson Institute, Washington, D.C. Headquarters
In the first of a series of seminars on entrepreneurship, ProfessorDavid Neumark will present a new paper on the effects on employment growth of various characteristics of firms, including births and deaths, and expansions and contractions. He uses data from California to estimate the contribution of each of these factors to employment growth.The evidence indicates that the births of new businesses and the expansion of existing ones, coupled with their counterparts of deaths and contractions of existing establishments, are the prime determinants of employment growth. In contrast, business relocation, while often the focus of public debate regarding the business climate, plays a negligible role. Professor Asher Epstein will comment.
