Abstract For a long time the self-employed rate in industrial nations was considered an indicator of the entrepreneurial potential of a region. Recent phenomena such as pseudo self-employment and the “Me plc”, however, have made such interpretations more or less obsolete. Within the Alpine space such manifestations of liberalized economic policy do not play a structurally important role. Rather the high rates of self-employment are driven by agricultural businesses, which often are limited in size by topographical conditions. Local trades, the small scale of local provision with everyday goods and services as a result of the transport structure, and the large number of tourist enterprises run as family businesses further contribute to the high rates.
