Testing Lazear’s Jack-of-All-Trades View of Entrepreneurship with German Micro Data

Joachim Wagner ()

No 592, IZA Discussion Papers from Institute of Labor Economics (IZA)

Abstract: This paper tests the theory recently put forward by Edward Lazear that individuals with competence in many skills should have a higher probability of being self-employed than others. The empirical results for Germany support this jack-of-all-trades view.
