Immigrant Entrepreneurs: Venturing Abroad in the Age of Globalization
Robert Kloosterman, Jan RathISBN: 1859736394;
Immigrant entrepreneurship increased dramatically in the 1990s and has had a huge impact on urban life. In spite of this, we rarely consider what role migrants play in their adopted country, and what effect they have on the global economic climate. This book explores the impact of immigrant business through in-depth case studies from the United States, Canada, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Australia, and South Africa. Is it the institutional structure of each country that attracts immigrant entrepreneurs? What role do welfare systems play? In what ways do immigrants use their own resources, make use of existing ones, and create new ones? Sophisticated in its analysis and innovative in its approach,this timely book is a benchmark publication. It provides a much-needed overview of this previously neglected social phenomenon.
