A study by High (2004) estimated that during the period from Differentials in endogenous regional employment growth in the US ­25 1990 to 1999 45 percent of the total value added in the manufacturing sector in the US was contributed by entrepreneurial manufacturing ­enterprises (that is, new growth ventures). Furthermore, work by Stough et al. (2002) created a conceptual entrepreneurial fountain model in which launched ventures go through the stages of entrepreneurial turbulence, idea development, resource development and acquisition, business plan, and capitalization.

The nature of the process by which this occurs is unclear and thus needs to be a topic for future research. 41 percent. 32 percent. Interpreting the finding on in-­person service workers contradicts expected opposite outcomes. One would expect endogenous growth to be positively correlated with rising regional incomes and thus endogenous growth because it implies that residents have a higher effective demand for personal services. If that is so, then it also implies that more individuals would start personal service firms.

The series of variables measuring the regional levels of human capital included7 the percentage of population over 25 with a bachelor’s degree in 2000 (BACH_00), the percentage of the population over 25 with a master’s degree or a professional degree in 2000 (EDUMP_00) and the percentage of population over 25 with a doctoral degree in 2000 (DOCT_00). 3 Independent variables II: market fit measures The second set of independent variables measuring the regional market fit for the US MSAs were intended to investigate the nature of regional industrial structure measured by location quotients for employment in three key sectors and shifts in occupational structure.
