This article ” Entrepreneurship and economics mobilit : A case Study of Bolivia” studies the relationship between entrepreneurship, economic mobility and income class in one of the most informal countries in the world: Bolivia. We argue that entrepreneurs should be defined not only by the act of starting a business enterprise but also for the motivation to seek a for-profit opportunity and demonstrate that both the tenure profiles and the mobility premiums in labor earnings per hour and per month reveal that not all people who provide employment for themselves are seeking a for-profit opportunity Otherwise, most self-employed workers (self-employed and cooperative) started a business enterprise only to have a job and earn a living, and only for a few self-employed workers who create at least one source of employment (employers), a salaried job in the formal sector is not unequivocally a superior alternative Once we identify a set of enterprises For “true” users, we use panel and pseudo – panel data to analyze their economic mobility relative to other types of self-employed and salaried workers.
