Hur olika typer av entreprenörskap stimulerar ekonomisk tillväxt är fortfarande en empiriskt outforskad fråga. Dessutom har teorier om relationen mellan entreprenörskap och tillväxt i mycket begränsad utsträckning beaktat branschstrukturens roll för tillväxt. I denna uppsats söker vi undersöka detta genom två forskningsfrågor: Bidrar teknikintensivt nyföretagande relativt mer till tillväxt i branscher med mer behov av ny teknik? Är tillväxten av nya teknikbaserade företag betingad av vissa branschstrukturers behov av ny teknik? Vi undersöker dessa frågor med hjälp av en mikro-meso modell av endogen tillväxt som testas på en totalräknad databas av kunskapsintensiva sektorer i Sverige mellan 1995–2002.

We use full-population data to study trends in intergenerational absolute income mobility, measured as the ratio of children earning more than their parents, for 11 Swedish cohorts born 1972-1983. Absolute mobility during this period increases from 72% to 84% for men and from 76% to 86% for women-higher figures than in most other countries studied. To explain these results, we outline a novel decomposition strategy that accounts for cohort variation in parent-generation income inequality. All else equal, if income inequality is higher in the parent generation, more economic growth is required to achieve any given level of absolute mobility. We discuss implications for comparative research in intergenerational income mobility.

Research is not merely report-writing; it also involves elements of storytelling. In this essay, we reflect on two narrative archetypes in entrepreneurship research: the stories of entrepreneurship as a road to salvation and means to emancipation. We outline a framework to analyze research from a storytelling perspective, apply this framework to identify implicit assumptions and methodological biases in mainstream research, and discuss how a storytelling framework can be used to generate alternative stories. We argue for a more empirically grounded research agenda that continues the development of entrepreneurship research into a rich and diverse field.
