The Small Firms Myth

Abstract

It is widely believed small firms have replaced large firms as the primary source of technological innovation, international competitiveness, and job creation. Yet there is little evidence to support these beliefs. In fact, the economic importance of large firms to both the national and global economy has not diminished. While their structure has changed, their adaptability has enabled them to continue to play a central role in wealth creation in the advanced industrial economies.
