Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We review longitudinal studies on self-employment dynamics, classifying studies into those that examine transitions into self-employment, and those that examine self-employment exit and survival. A number of hypotheses from both the economic and social-psychological literatures are examined vis. the effects on self-employment dynamics of financial, human and social capital, intergenerational effects, and labour market hardships.
