Description

This volume is an excellent addition to Routledge’s Studies in Small Business series. In this extended and novel entrepreneurial analysis of small firm inception and growth, a leading authority in the field develops a new kind of ‘micro-micro’ analysis, applying rigorous methods from economics, accounting and finance to gain a deeper understanding of micro-firms. Reid examines performance, hierarchy, capital structure, monitoring and control, flexibility, innovation and information systems.

Using statistical, econometric and qualitative methods of empirical research, Foundations of Small Business Enterprise tracks and analyses the evolution of 150 small firms from their early years through to maturity.

This title will appeal to a wide range of students, specialists and practitioners in economics, accounting and finance.
