Six theories of why fast-growing start-ups are disappearing

I was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal for a piece about the (maybe) declining quality of entrepreneurship in the US, based on a recent working paper. It’s a good piece with a nicely nuanced take: it highlights an interesting fact to be explained and understood, raises some (methodological) issues with the state of that fact, and presents six theories to explain the fact. I’d probably say that my contribution was more of a hypothesis relative to some of the more well-grounded ideas, though.

Here’s a link to the article (it’s paywalled, unfortunately). Definitely worth a read.
