The Institutional Evolution of Labour Market Institutions in Europe and Entrepreneurship Gerarda Westerhuis och Magnus Henrekson

What is the impact of labour market institu­tions on entrepreneurial activity? Recently it has been argued that flexible labour market institutions have a positive influence on entre­preneurial activity. No doubt, labour mobility is an important condition for entrepreneur­ship.

The institutions governing the allocation of labour and talent in society enable entrepre­neurs to develop their businesses and affect the willingness of employees to be(come) entrepreneurial. In this paper we analyse these institutions by reviewing labour market regulation in European coun­tries from a historical perspective.
