Abstract: The thesis comprises three chapters. The first analyses the effect of perceptions of Government-Linked Companies (GLCs) on Singaporeansa?? occupational choice and finds the perceptions are not statistically significant. The main determinants are the number of years of formal education, number of dependants and inclination of Singaporeans towards risk-taking. The second models a socially optimal tax-subsidy scheme and shows the scheme increases the proportion of entrepreneurs. Numerical simulation shows a higher level of entrepreneurial profit is associated with a higher optimal tax rate and a greater proportion of entrepreneurs. The third chapter examines the relationship between individualsa?? allocation of time towards education and MNCsa?? decision to transfer knowledge. We find only entrepreneur-type individuals take into account the rate of knowledge transfer by the MNCs in allocating time to education. MNCs, in turn, provide knowledge transfer to entrepreneur-type individuals.
