English to Portuguese: To Create Jobs, Nurture Start-Ups General field: Bus/Financial Detailed field: Economics
Source text - English For decades, the assumption has been that small business is the economy’s dynamic engine of job generation. Look at the numbers broadly, and that is the irrefutable conclusion: two-thirds of net new jobs are created by companies with fewer than 500 employees, which is the government’s definition of a small business. But research published last month by three economists has found that once the age of the businesses is taken into account, there is no difference in the job-producing performance of small companies and big ones.
Translation - Portuguese Por décadas, supõe-se que as microempresas são os motores da economia responsáveis pela geração de empregos. Observando amplamente os números, chegamos a uma conclusão irrefutável: dois terços da nova rede de empregos foram criados por empresas com menos de 500 funcionários, que segundo o governo americano, é o que define uma microempresa. Porém, uma pesquisa publicada no mês passado por três economistas revelou que, a não ser que a idade da empresa seja levada em conta, a capacidade de produzir empregos não é diferente entre as pequenas e as grandes empresas.
