Abstract: The literature on entrepreneurship suggests that the impact of entrepreneurial activity on economic growth varies with the stage of economic development of a country. While entrepreneurial activity is positively associated with economic growth in rich countries, it has a negative effect poor countries. Our paper explores this implication by examining the association between entrepreneurial activity and economic growth for a sample of countries. Our econometric investigation suggests inadequate depth and development of the financial sector reduce the growth-enhancing impact of entrepreneurial activities. Surprisingly, the existence of corruption does not impede the beneficial impact of entrepreneurial activity on growth in our data set.
