The institutional environment - including protection of private properties and contract enforcement - has been rather unfavorable for the emergence and development of China's private enterprises. This is in sharp contrast to the case of the developed economies where the institutional environment is conductive to the entrepreneurial activities and only the personal attributes of would-be entrepreneurs determine their entrepreneurship decision. The authors thus propose a theoretical framework for the entrepreneurship decision in China with a focus on the role of institutional environment.
