Erik Stam, a fellow of the Advanced Institute of Management Research at Cambridge University, discussed his paper, “High Growth Entrepreneurs, Public Policies and Economic Growth.” In it, he contends that the development of entrepreneurs and small business owners as a whole is less important to a country’s economic development than the “gazelles” – companies identified in literature as having high growth potential. This suggests that small business policy is not necessarily most effective when it targets small businesses indiscriminately; rather, it may be more efficient to target those businesses most likely to create growth.
Waguespack, Stelzer, Furchtgott-Roth, and Stam
Irwin Stelzer, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, commented. David Waguespack, professor of management at the University of Maryland Robert H Smith School of Business, also commented. Diana Furchtgott-Roth, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, moderated the discussion.
