Abstract

This chapter describes the current situation of entrepreneurship in Haiti and the main obstacles entrepreneurs face in that country. It looks at entrepreneurship from a comparative-economics perspective (stressing quantitative variables) and from an anthropological perspective (stressing qualitative research). The chapter presents some case studies from the city of Jérémie and offers policy recommendations.

Keywords: Haiti, Entrepreneurship, Public Policy
