Therefore, the entrepreneurial activity promotes economical gains, which in turn promotes social gains in the form of better salaries and better social infra-structures. Among its many dimensions, the main focus of the current paper has been the relations between new firms birth its causes and consequences. We introduced a rather stylized model which explicitly linked various variables to form the theoretical foundation for the analytical analysis. Such an analysis was carried out by resorting to Rio Grande do Sul data on a set of municipalities. The paper finds evidence for Rio Grande do Sul to support the view that economical institutional and demographic variables shape new firms birth rate.
We did not find any role for city unemployment, ethnic-cultural background and income disparity in explaining patters of entry across cities, however. On the other hand, we do find that local education progress and education investment variables are very important for new start-ups. This suggests that people and their human capital are probably the crucial ingredients for most new entrepreneurs. But, evidence on the demand side appeared to matter as well. Population growth was the most important regional characteristics to affect new firm formation rate.
The income growth and the governmental transferences to the population appeared to have a negative relation. While this outcomes are provocative, we remain cautious about the strength of these findings, and we hope that future research will uncover other identification strategies for these results. We also find significant evidence on the importance of the local intensity of business in the area. This result suggests that higher number of establishment per person per area influences later growth through the increased productive externality generated by contact possibilities.
The regional presence of a strong small establishment segment was also related to new firm formation confirming the studies of Reynolds et al. Remarkably, however, was the find that the entrepreneurial activity in a region may mediate the effects of other variables on the regional economic and social performance. The positive association between entrepreneurship rate and economic and human development also indicates that policies set for improving the entrepreneurship impetus and the quality of the entrepreneurship may have significant impacts in the population welfare.
