The book looks into the relationship between firm dynamics, innovation and globalisation and the necessary policies that could ensure a long term economic growth and welfare creation. This volume deals with these three issues in three sections titled respectively: entrepreneurship, new firm formation and growth; productivity-innovation-growth nexus; globalisation, multinational firms and producers’ dynamics.

The book presents new studies written by distinguished researchers in the field, who use state-of-the-art methodologies and extensive sources of firm- and plant-level longitudinal data to analyse and understand these major economic issues facing modern economies.
