Entrepreneurship in China and Russia Compared

Simeon Djankov, Yingyi Qian, Gérard Roland and Ekaterina Zhuravskaya

Journal of the European Economic Association, 2006, vol. 4, issue 2-3, 352-365

Abstract: We compare results from a pilot study on entrepreneurship in China and Russia. Compared to non-entrepreneurs, Russian and Chinese entrepreneurs have more entrepreneurs in their family and among childhood friends, value work more relative to leisure and have higher wealth ambitions. Russian entrepreneurs have a better educational background and their parents were more likely to have been members of the Communist Party but Chinese entrepreneurs are more risk-taking and greedy and have more entrepreneurs among their childhood friends.
