Entrepreneurial skills, trust and jobs: three essays on entrepreneurial skills of self-employed and employees

Teodoro i Sadurní, Jaume
This thesis is an empirical study that sets out to explain entrepreneurial activity, based on a broad concept of entrepreneurship. The study is based on the development of logistic regression models for a dichotomous variable of entrepreneurship, which we attempt to explain, always working from observational data from third party sources, basically GEM and REFLEX. In the course of the thesis, we set out to explain entrepreneurial activity, starting with an initial approach that looks at institutional context and moving immediately to a second approach based on human capital. The study also incorporates both a closed-spectrum concept associated with self-employment as an occupational choice and a broad concept based on the behavioural approach, in other words, on the entrepreneur as an agent of change in an economic environment based on innovation ​
