Project Lead: 
Leo Maganares
Project Description: 

The relationship between entrepreneurship and well-being at the individual level is not the same as the relationship between the two at the country level.  This paper argues that external intangible macro-environment stimuli (happiness, humanity efforts, healthiness) at the country level are as relevant to the study of entrepreneurial activities as the tangible macro-environmental factors or internal cognitive reasons for these activities.
