MUNGARAY LAGARDA, Alejandro et al. The Role of Local Micro and Small Business Entrepreneurship during the Economic Crisis: The case of Baja California, 2008-2011. Frontera norte [online]. 2015, vol.27, n.53, pp.115-146. ISSN 2594-0260.

This paper analyzes the implementation of a regional public policy that favors the development of micro and small enterprises in Baja California's economy to mitigate a gloomy employment situation. Using estimated regression models, it was found that in a global economic crisis scenario where production and employment in large companies are constrained and workers are replaced by more technology-intensive processes, the proliferation of micro and small businesses is a compensatory mechanism to minimize the effects of unemployment.

Keywords : business size; employment; public policy; regional economy; Baja California.
