Economic Notes, 2015, vol. 44, issue 1, 57-74

Abstract: type="main">

This paper is aimed at assessing the role of the judicial system in facilitating entrepreneurial action. More precisely it tries to show how the quality in solving dispute affects the would-be entrepreneurs' perception on the reliability in enforcing contract and the easiness in accessing credit. The estimates confirm the aforementioned theoretical premises on an empirical ground. Judicial efficiency is a relevant factor for explaining entrepreneurship also when accounting for a set of various country-specific characteristics regarding not only the judiciary, but also the law on the books, the political environment, and socio-economic conditions.
