''Is firm growth proportional? An appraisal of firm size distribution''
( 2001, Vol. 12 No.6 )
 
 
The aim of this paper is to shed light on the phenomenon of firm growth, analyzing the evolution of young firms within some selected industries. We find that the firm size distribution is fairly skewed to the right during the infancy stage, whereas it converges towards a more symmetric distribution, via selection mechanisms, with the passing of time.
