In a twenty-first century shaped by increasing market competition, business failures are inevitable for many firms, yet capturing and utilizing insights from failures and alleviating unnecessary business failure remain major obstacles. In this paper, we present an overview of the literature on business failure and attempt to clarify some key issues on the subject. We also present an introduction to the Special Issue on ‘Business Failures around the World’ and highlight several novel ideas, emerging trends and uncharted terrains for future research.
