Venture capital adds economic spice

- "Venture capital injects economic dynamism: An increase in VC investments of 1‰ of GDP is statistically associated with an increase in real GDP growth of 0.30 pp. Early-stage investments have an even bigger impact of 0.96 pp."
- "The direction of causality is not always easy to establish. Yet, tests for Granger-causality in the biggest market, the US, suggest that causality runs from VC-investments to growth. There is also substantial micro-evidence that supports this view."
- "Exuberances drive much of the correlation. Taking account of the dotcom boom and bust as well as of the financial crisis leads to lower coefficients."
