By serving as a conduit for knowledge spillovers, entrepreneurship is the missing link between investments in new knowledge and economic growth. The knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship provides not just an explanation of why entrepreneurship has become more prevalent as the factorof knowledge has emerged as a crucial source for comparative advantage, but also why entrepreneurship plays a vital role in generating economic growth. Entrepreneurship is an important mechanism permeating the knowledge filter to facilitate the spill over of knowledge and ultimately generateeconomic growth.

Editorial Reviews

"In this exquisitely researched volume, Audretsch, Keilbach and Lehmann offer a compelling rationale for the emergence of a new form of economic development policy. They argue for entrepreneurship - the formation and growth of economically viable businesses - as an engine of economicgrowth. Entrepreneurship policy focuses on the businesses that convert investment into returns. Their compelling argument is that the new entrepreneurship policy has far more promise than previous approaches in an increasingly global, knowledge-intensive economic era. I highly recommend thisvolume for those seeking to understand the increasingly complex, interdependent dynamics that take place in a 'flat,' information-rich and interconnected world."--Rita Gunther McGrath, Associate Professor, Columbia University Graduate School of Business
