The Entrepreneurial Culture: Guiding Principles of the Self-Employed
Florian Noseleit ()
No 2008-034, Jena Economic Research Papers from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena
What makes entrepreneurs different? Using a cross-country dataset, this paper explores essential parts of the value system of entrepreneurs in Western European countries by comparing value items of the self-employed to that of the non-self-employed. The self- employed rate values higher that aim toward openness to change and self-enhancement. In turn, values related to conservation are considered less important.
