Entrepreneurship in Japan: Interpretation of Findings
Chapter Chapter 13 in The Entrepreneur in Rule-Based Economics, 2017, pp 147-154 from Springer
Abstract We present an overview of findings on entrepreneurial attitudes, latent and actual entrepreneurship in Japan between 1992 and 2012. Drawing on micro-data from the Japanese edition of Global Entrepreneurship Monitor we further triangulate the results pertaining to the relevance of cultural factors. Importantly, age shows a negative correlation to the perceived status of entrepreneurs and to fear of failure, which corroborates the finding that Fear of Failure and Traditional Class Order are reinforced through the transmission mechanism of Filial Piety. A direct comparison to two earlier studies on the same dependent variables evidences the superior explanatory power originating from the integrated empirical design of a rule-based inquiry. By amending our earlier theoretical propositions with evidence specific to Japan and to the observation period we achieve inductive closure.
