Do Regions with Entrepreneurial Neighbors Perform Better? A Spatial Econometric Approach for German Regions

We use a neoclassical production function to analyze the effects of knowledge spillovers via entrepreneurship on economic performance of 337 German districts. To take the spatial dependence structure of the data into account, we estimate a spatial Durbin model. We highlight the importance of the choice of the appropriate weight matrix. We find positive knowledge spillover effects via entrepreneurship ...

However, three questions remain: whether endogeneity is really present, whether ...
