Summary
"Despite the seemingly relentless march of the multinationals, small businesses continue to thrive across the globe and form a vital part of all successful economies." "This book provides an international perspective on this important topic, and includes a wealth of data from a range of countries in the European Union, North America, East Asia and developing countries. The analysis of the historical role of small firms in economic development throughout the world demonstrates how small businesses contribute to the mobilisation and deployment of resources for growth and technical advance." "This book challenges much conventional thinking on the subject and contains examples from the over 40 countries in which the author has worked or studied. Students of small business and entrepreneurship will find Graham Bannock's accessible writing style to be very helpful in gaining a good understanding of this important field."--BOOK JACKET
