    "I appreciate the SSRN platform to publish my work," said Vass, who has been writing about the intersection of regional capital markets and economic growth since 1979.

    "I wrote the article in response to an article that was critical of the new crowdfunding method," he explained. "Crowdfunding has only been around for a short period of time, and traditional sources of capital are taking pot-shots at the new kid in town."

    "There are solid theoretical reasons why crowdfunding will stimulate regional economic growth better than traditional venture capital sources of funding." he added.
