Social Economics and Entrepreneurship

Editor(s): Patricia-Luciana Runcan

Book Description

In the context of recent changes in the economic and social spheres, one of the most important topics of interest for researchers is the analysis of the way in which social economics and entrepreneurship may be used as successful approaches in social work. This type of approach has seen a remarkable increase in popularity, and has implications for social, economic, and political organisations, as well as for the design of governing policies and strategies at local, regional, national, and even international levels. Social Economics and Entrepreneurship deals with core topics such as social economics management, human resources, and the impact of economics on social development. The book will appeal mainly to researchers involved in these fields, though the 21 essays compiled here are also a useful starting-point for a wider audience wishing to familiarise themselves with these subjects.
