Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Towards a Model for Expanding Entrepreneurship: Lessons from Morocco
by Bloom, David S., M.A., The American University of Paris (France), 2014, 56; 13833848
Abstract (Summary)

Entrepreneurship is pivotal for developing economies and for providing an open avenue for creating new employment, competition, and innovation. Higher rates of new business entry correlate with higher GDP, economic competitiveness, and better governance. Governments can improve business entry and promote entrepreneurship in several ways, both in terms of broad reforms and targeted policies. Morocco is a country with an existential imperative to do so, given its persistent unemployment and prospects for potential instability. Analyzing Morocco’s attempts from the past several years to boost business entry, using interviews with Moroccan entrepreneurs and available data to evaluate what has worked and what has not, the authors will construct a regulatory framework for policymakers to consider in their attempts to promote entrepreneurship.
