Abell, Peter, Crouchley, Robert and Mills, Colin (2001) Social capital and entrepreneurship in Great Britain. Enterprise and innovation management studies, 2 (2). pp. 119-144. ISSN 1463-2446
This paper examines the evidence for the existence of a link between social capital and the propensity to become an entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is proxied by self-employment and the influence of social capital is indicated both indirectly in aggregate-level data analysis and directly in micro-level data. The results suggest a modest, but heretofore neglected influence of social capital on entrepreneurship levels and suggest a reason why existing research on self-employment has tended to produce inconclusive and inconsistent results.
