Entry, growth and survival in the green industry. Regional Studies. Economists are interested in the factors that induce firm entry, lead to growth and help firms succeed in various markets. Such information can be helpful to policy-makers, but, unfortunately, such patterns have not been considered for ‘green industries’. This paper takes advantage of a recent definition of green industries proposed by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) to investigate patterns characterizing these industries within the State of Texas.
