The main objective of the subject is to analyse the different economic policies that stimulate entrepreneurship activity of a country, showing the direct and indirect effects that could have any influence on such activity.

Entrepreneurship has been considered during the last years as an important growth enhancing element. And for this reason it is necessary to determine the activities that would stimulate entrepreneurship activity.
