We have a call for chapters in Destructive Entrepreneurship in Emerging Markets: Causes and Consequences, a book with Springer.
The aim of this book is to provide explanations to questions such as what does destructive entrepreneurship look like in emerging economies? What are the causes of destructive entrepreneurship in emerging economies? What are the consequences from destructive entrepreneurship activities? What is the link between institutional set up and destructive entrepreneurship? What does this mean for productive/destructive entrepreneurship? There are few empirical studies in destructive entrepreneurship that often try to show the availability of such harmful activities (or their taxonomy, e.g., Webb et al., 2014, on their effects on hampering growth aspirations of entrepreneurs, e.g., Estrin et al., 2013). In addition, extant literature has focused on institutions and enhancing such activities (Xheneti, Smallbone, and Welter, 2012, Williams, Dragana, Cristian, and Tim, 2017) within the informal economy without showing the causes.
Suggestions for topics in the context of emerging markets include, but are not limited to the following:
- The traits and mindset of a destructive entrepreneur in the emerging market context
- The role of cognitive biases in leading individuals toward destructive entrepreneurship
- The entrepreneurial journey of destructive entrepreneurs in emerging markets
- Networks of destructive entrepreneurs in emerging markets
- The analysis of context (e.g., religion, culture, family background, country's developmental stage, and geographical location) influencing individuals to do destructive entrepreneurship
- The relationship between institutional infrastructure and destructive entrepreneurship in emerging markets
- Examples of negative socioeconomic externalities that result from destructive entrepreneurship and how they can be prevented.
· - Comparisons of destructive entrepreneurship and productive entrepreneurship in emerging markets
· - Under what conditions can destructive and productive entrepreneurship co-exist?
· - Formal and informal rules of the game. How do formal and informal institutions shape destructive entrepreneurship?
· - Policies emerging market governments can implement to hinder destructive entrepreneurship and enable productive entrepreneurship
· - Consequences of deliberate policies implemented in emerging markets to sustain sustenance at the expense of creative and innovative productive entrepreneurship
· - How does the COVID-19 pandemic influence destructive and productive entrepreneurship in the emerging context?
