Resumen


Este estudio analiza el impacto del “tamaño del Estado” en la actividad emprendedora en países con diferente nivel de desarrollo económico. Se han utilizado las variables “tamaño del gobierno” del índice de libertad económica elaborado por The Economic Freedom Network (2000-2009) y por The Heritage Foundation (2000-2011) y las variables sobre emprendimiento confeccionadas por The Global Entrepreneurship Monitor. Además, se ha realizado el mismo análisis agrupando los países según el nivel de desarrollo económico, siguiendo la clasificación elaborada por The World Economic Forum. El análisis estadístico ha mostrado que el “tamaño del gobierno” está relacionado con el emprendimiento. Las variables “Tamaño del Gobierno: Gastos, Impuestos y Empresas” y “Tamaño del Gobierno” han revelado una correlación positiva con el índice de actividad emprendedora total, por oportunidad y por necesidad para aquellas economías basadas en la eficiencia y en la innovación, y por consiguiente, menos impuestos a las rentas y menores gastos gubernamentales incrementarán la actividad emprendedora de un país. Para los países con economías basadas en factores no existe relación entre el tamaño del gobierno y la creación de empresas.
