'This outstanding volume by Zoltán J. Ács, a leading expert on entrepreneurship and innovation, provides the perfect introduction to current thinking about entrepreneurship in the global economy. The topics are critical for people contemplating entrepreneurship and development; from knowledge diffusion to philanthropy, regional growth and the role of entrepreneurs in economic growth.'
- Saul Estrin , London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

This book presents some of Zoltán J. Ács' most important contributions since the turn of the new millennium, with a particular intellectual focus on knowledge spillover entrepreneurship. It studies the evolution of global entrepreneurship and pays attention to the role of institutions and the incentives they create for economic agents who become either productive or unproductive entrepreneurs.

For productive entrepreneurs, those that create wealth for themselves and for society, the author offers a knowledge spillover theory of entrepreneurship as a new way to help understand the entrepreneurial ecosystem. For those that create wealth only for themselves the author develops a theory of destructive entrepreneurship that undermines the entrepreneurial ecosystem. The book also presents an explanation of the role of philanthropy in reconstituting wealth to complete the circuits of capital in the theory of capitalist development. Finally, the author examines several public policy issues including immigration and technology transfer.

This volume will be required reading for students and scholars of entrepreneurship, economics and public policy.

Review:

`This book brings together much-admired pieces of literature to help us to understand the dynamics of global entrepreneurship, situating them within the formal institutions and systems of incentives in the countries and regions where they begin and shows how they are later expanded to larger markets. This book will also help the emerging economies to strategize their public policies for entrepreneurship development. This book is recommended to scholars and practitioners engaged in entrepreneurship research, or studying the entrepreneurial behaviors of global enterprises.' -- Science & Public Policy `This outstanding volume by Zoltan J.
