The Global Entrepreneurship and Development Index
The modern “temple” of the entrepreneurial ecosystem is like many temples of the ancient world: both are held up by pillars. Today’s economic ecosystem is supported by the pillars of development, which are held together by the cement of incentives created by institutions that influence the behavior of individuals. If a fully developed economy is to continue to flourish, these pillars need constant attention, continuous improvement, and careful maintenance, and they must be of similar height and strength.
