With the attention of globalization, naturalism and how these benefit firms, we developed objectives of how measures of economic globalization-access to markets, trade deregulation and trade competition affect job creation (entrepreneurship development) in an environment that interacts with local constraints. We used the Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS) to test this moderating effect, but could only establish a negative moderating effect of constraint and trade deregulation on job creation. We conclude that while access to markets and trade competition have nothing to do with local constraints on predicting job creation, trade deregulation does. For future directions, studies could be done on the bases of firm size, industry, and economic class.
