Gianluca Faella - The role of efficiencies in abuse cases is far from satisfactory.

The causal relation between entrepreneurial ecosystem and productive entrepreneurship: a measurement framework
Melita Nicotra, Marco Romano, Manlio Del Giudice & Carmela Elita Schillaci - The paper proposes a framework for measuring and testing the causal effects of a set of entrepreneurial ecosystems factors (eco-factors) on productive entrepreneurship (eco-output).
