Small and medium-sized enterprises in the global economy ( )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Entrepreneurship and globalization are two much-examined forces as we enter the new millennium--yet very little has been published on the intersection of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the global economy. To close the gap, this volume delves into the intricate roles and consequences of such businesses on both global and domestic economies. The first part of the volume provides an overview of the phenomenon of globalization, arguing that entrepreneurial discovery and technological change lead to globalization, which in turn leads to further opportunity for entrepreneurial discovery--no less for SMEs than for multinational corporations. In part two, the essays examine the role of SMEs in the global economy and why they are thriving. Part three reviews the roles of SMEs and innovators and examines their roles in direct foreign investment. Part four explores the role of technological diversity and knowledge spillovers as a way to explain the superior innovative performance of SMEs. Part five looks at the role of SMEs in technology transfer. Finally, part six examines the theoretical and policy implications of the international activities of SMEs, suggesting that policies should aim to reduce the costs in international expansion for SMEs. This volume will provide the foundation for further study in SMEs and globalization. It will appeal to scholars and students in both international business and economics. Zoltan J. Acs is Professor of Economics and Finance, University of Baltimore. Bernard Yin Yeung is Professor of International Business, University of Michigan

Why philanthropy matters : how the wealthy give, and what it means for our economic well-being by Zoltán J Ács ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Philanthropy has long been a distinctive feature of American culture, but its crucial role in the economic well-being of the nation--and the world--has remained largely unexplored. Why Philanthropy Matters takes an in-depth look at philanthropy as an underappreciated force in capitalism, measures its critical influence on the free-market system, and demonstrates how American philanthropy could serve as a model for the productive reinvestment of wealth in other countries. Factoring in philanthropic cycles that help balance the economy, Zoltan Acs offers a richer picture of capitalism, and a more accurate backdrop for considering policies that would promote the capitalist system for the good of all." --Publisher's description

Innovation and the growth of cities by Zoltán J Ács ( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book by Zoltan Acs explores the relationship between industrial innovation and economic growth at the regional level, and reaches conclusions as to why some regions grow but others decline. While the analysis draws on industrial organization, labor economics, regional science, geography and entrepreneurship, the book focuses on innovation and the growth of cities by the use of endogenous growth theory." "The author argues that industrial innovation is the driving force behind long-run regional growth, and explores the issues of how technology and entrepreneurship can foster and promote growth at the regional level." "With its multidisciplinary approach, Innovation and the Growth of Cities will be welcomed by academics and researchers alike in the areas of innovation and science, regional science and geography, entrepreneurship and evolutionary economics."--Jacket
Entrepreneurship, geography, and American economic growth by Zoltán J Ács ( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 1990s showed that growth in the American economy is dependent on knowledge spillovers among primarily college-educated workers who start new businesses to profit from ideas they develop into competitive new products and services. Using comprehensive annual business data from the U.S. Bureau of the Census, the authors find that the regions with the highest rates of new-firm formation are the fastest-growing economic areas."--BOOK JACKET
Entrepreneurship, small and medium-sized enterprises, and the macroeconomy ( Book )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By examining the functions of new firms and entrepreneurs in the economy, the essays in this volume make a fundamental contribution to our understanding of the macroeconomy. Each chapter clarifies the role of entrepreneurs in economic theory, the function of small and medium-sized enterprises that they found and build and the impact of the innovations introduced on employment, productivity and economic growth. The public policy implications of this process are clear. Countries that encourage entrepreneurship and free entry will have better macroeconomic performance than those that retard it. And a dynamic small and medium-sized enterprise sector requires addressing the issue of inadequate management competence and bridging the gap between large and small firms

Are small firms important? : their role and impact by Zoltán J Ács ( Book )
10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Are Small Firms Important? Their Role and Impact proposes and supports the claim that small firms make two indispensable contributions to the economy. First, they are an integral part of the renewal process that pervades market economies. New and small firms play a crucial role in experimentation and innovation that leads to technological change, productivity and economic growth. Second, small firms are the essential mechanism by which millions enter the economic and social mainstream of American society. The public policy implications for sustained economic growth and social well-being is the continued high-level creation of new and small firms by all segments of society. It should be the role of government policy to facilitate that process by eliminating entry barriers, lowering transaction costs, and minimizing regulation

This survey links the prevalent theory from the entrepreneurship literature concerning opportunity recognition and exploitation to economic theory, in particular the model of the knowledge production function. The debate and evidence regarding the relationship between innovative activity and organizational context is examined. The role that the external knowledge context or what has become known as knowledge spillovers and geographic location plays in innovative activity is analyzed. Based on new theoretical models combined with compelling empirical evidence, the authors offer a reinterpretation of the role of entrepreneurship in innovative activity and technology
