Abstract

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. This work further proposes the positive correlations among entrepreneurial activities, happiness, healthiness, and humanity efforts at the country level.
