Public Sector Entrepreneurship, Politics, and Innovation

Albert Link and Dora Gicheva

No 21-6, UNCG Economics Working Papers from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of Economics

Abstract: We suggest that a political leader or a political administration can be described in terms of a public sector entrepreneurship framework. To illustrate, we define the actions of U.S. President Donald Trump’s Administration to refocus the emphasis of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an innovative public policy initiative. And, we explore empirically the social consequences of those actions in terms of changes in the number of STEM employees at the EPA and the number of attendant innovative scientific publications.
