The Long Persistence of Regional Entrepreneurship Culture: Germany 1925-2005

Michael Fritsch and Michael Wyrwich

No 2012-036, Jena Economics Research Papers from Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena

Abstract: We investigate the persistence of levels of self-employment and new business formation in different time periods and under different framework conditions. The analysis shows that high levels of regional self-employment and new business formation tend to be persistent for periods as long as 80 years and that such an entrepreneurial culture can even survive abrupt and drastic changes in the politic-economic environment. We thus conclude that regional entrepreneurship cultures do exist and that they have long-lasting effects.
