Xavier Ordeñana and Ramon Villa

Latin American Journal of Economics-formerly Cuadernos de Economía, 2014, vol. 51, issue 2, 307-341

Abstract: Does entrepreneurship contribute to improving social mobility in Ecuador? This paper constructs a pseudo-panel to analyze the dynamic effect of entrepreneurship on Ecuadorian household incomes during the period 2002- 2010. Using dynamic panel estimation techniques and three estimation scenarios, the paper finds a significant level of unconditional mobility and an important effect of entrepreneurship (conditional mobility).
