Title: Emergent Entrepreneurs: Latina-Owned Businesses in the Borderlands
Author: Robles, Bárbara J.; Zarnikau, Jay
Abstract: During the 1990s, the number of Latina small businesses grew by an extraordinary 209 percent. These privately-held, majority-owned businesses accounted for $29.4 billion in receipts and employed nearly 198,000 workers. Research shows that growth rates for Latina entrepreneurs and microentrepreneurs are related to factors unique to the Latino community. What are these factors? And how can this economic growth be facilitated along the U.S.-Mexico border? Also in this issue: "Is It Time for Texas to Tax Pollution?" by Jay Zarnikau.
