Reflecting on the Entrepreneurship Paradox in Sub Saharan Africa

Mwastika Charles, 

Résumé: Entrepreneurship is a strategy for economic growth and it is perceived to be higher in developing countries. But other scholars found that it does not bring economic growth in developing countries. The purpose of the study was to reflect on this paradox in Sub Saharan Africa from neoclassical economic theory where entrepreneurship is perceived as carrying out innovations. A cross sectional survey of enterprises was undertaken in Malawi to measure values of new products, new methods of production, new markets and new enterprises. Comparison of mean values and 2 independent samples tests were used to analyse innovations carried out, types of entrepreneurial enterprises and their prevalence. The study found that carrying out innovations among enterprises in Malawi is low. Opportunity-motivated, growth-oriented and limited liability enterprises are entrepreneurial types of enterprises but there were very few. Therefore the paradox depends on the theory which guides the understanding of entrepreneurship. The classical economic perspective reflects the paradox while the neoclassical economic perspective does not. The study contributes to knowledge on the types of entrepreneurial enterprises and that the paradox depends on the understanding of entrepreneurship. The findings imply that entrepreneurship is ineffective for economic growth in developing countries because of lack of carrying out innovations. Therefore, the understanding of entrepreneurship in developing countries needs to be adjusted to neoclassical economic theories so that policy focuses on supporting entrepreneurial enterprises in order for entrepreneurship to be effective for economic growth, ceteris paribus.

Evaluating Starting a Business Indicators Innovation in the World.

Antoine Niyungeko, 

Résumé: Background: Since 2003, the World Bank produced annual report ranking economies based on ease of doing business score. However, little is known whether the improvements made by evaluated economies on starting business indicators are statistically significant as claimed by the World Bank. Purpose: This study aims to evaluate the extent to which starting business indicators were improved in 145 economies evaluated. Indicators assessed are score-starting a business (SBS), starting a business - procedures -men (SBPM), Starting a business –time-men (SBTM), Starting a Business - Cost - Men (SBCM), starting a business - procedures - women (SBPW), starting a business - Time - Women (SBTW), Starting a Business - Cost - Women (SBCW), and Starting a Business - Paid-in Minimum capital (SBPMC). Design/method/approach: This study used secondary quantitative data retrieved from the database of the World Bank for 2004 and 2020 periods. The sample size was made by 145 economies. Wilcoxon-sign-rank-test-paired-sample was computed using R programming environment. Findings: The results of the Wilcoxon-sign-rank-test-paired-sample indicated that the mean differences are statistically different from zero for all indicators except evaluated. This means economies evaluated improved those indicators for 2020 compared to 2004. Practical implication: The study’s findings provide clear insight to policymakers regarding progress made on the efforts of ease of doing business improvement. A better use of the findings of this study would lead to reducing corruption and increasing formal business, increasing the number of the new registered business, generating increase in business opportunities of starting new business, and increasing the productivity of companies. Research limitations: This study evaluated whether business regulatory implemented regarding starting a business was statically significant. Future research should be conducted to test empirically the significance of implemented procedures related to other indicators evaluated in doing business report. Originality/value: This research is novel by testing empirically progress made in 145 world economies on starting business requirement.
