"In China," says Yasheng Huang, "unlike in the U.S., much of the entrepreneurialism is a rural phenomenon." Expanding on his recent WQ essay, Huang speaks with editor Steven Lagerfeld and Wilson Center dialogue host John Milewski about the particular challenges of promoting entrepreneurial efforts in developing countries. One obstacle he cites is that rural populations tend to be less educated than their urban counterparts, and Huang and his MIT colleagues are studying ways to inform small business operators about possible strategies for growing their businesses.
