Measuring Business Creation in Canada and the United States

Printer-friendly version

This study examines business creation in Canada and the United States. Business creation refers to the process of starting a new enterprise and is an important aspect of entrepreneurship. Economic research outlined in this study reveals that business creation not only represents the commercialization of ideas, but also indicates dynamism -- the degree to which new businesses replace old ones -- in an economy. The process of new business creation increases competition and, thus, can help explain changes in productivity, innovation, and economic growth.
