Harvey S. Rosen

Princeton University

Harvey S. Rosen, professor of economics at Princeton University, examined data from the Panel Study on Income Dynamics and other sources for a study of the relation of entrepreneurship to income mobility. He completed the first draft of a paper in which he concludes that there is some merit to the notion that self-employment provides a way for low-income individuals to increase their incomes, although for higher income people, self employment often leads to downward movement in the earnings distribution.
