The influence of financial knowledge on the entrepreneurship behaviors of landless rural households: an empirical analysis based on IV-Heckman Model
China Rural Survey,2019,No. 03
This paper used the survey data collected from landless rural households in Shandong and Jiangsu provinces in 2018 and designed a measurement system of financial knowledge of the landless rural households. By using the IV-Heckman model and an intermediary effect method, the study empirically examined the influence of financial knowledge on the entrepreneurial behaviors of landless rural households who had lost their land passively. The findings were as follows. (1) Financial knowledge had a significantly positive influence on the entrepreneurial decision-making and performance of the rural households who had lost their land. The improvement of financial knowledge level could promote their initiative to participate in entrepreneurial activities and improve their entrepreneurial performance. (2) Financial knowledge could promote the participation in entrepreneurial activities of landless rural households because of their improved access to financial channels and their increased ability to obtain financial capital. (3) Financial knowledge could improve the participation in entrepreneurial activities of landless rural households by increasing their risk preferences, but could not improve their entrepreneurial performance.
