Authors Rajiv Dehejia and Nandini Gupta discovered that despite theory suggesting that capital markets affect entrepreneurship and financial market development is associated with an increase in self-employment, there seems to be an opposite effect in India.

They also found that there is greater access to credit from formal institutions when there is a decrease in household employment or an increase in formal employment and wages.
