Palabras clave: felicidad, globalización, emprendedores, emprendimiento, crecimiento


El estudio se basa en la conjetura de que la felicidad aumentada mejora el crecimiento del espíritu empresarial y que las naciones felices tienden a producir un mayor número de empresarios. Además de la felicidad, este estudio también mide el efecto de la globalización en el emprendimiento. Para este mismo propósito, la felicidad y la globalización han retrocedido con el espíritu empresarial. La teoría de la satisfacción del deseo se ha utilizado para explicar la relación de felicidad, globalización y emprendimiento. Para verificar los supuestos establecidos, se probaron datos de 125 países del mundo. Los datos del Índice de globalización (IG), el Índice de felicidad (HI) y el Índice de emprendimiento global (GEI) se extrajeron del Índice de globalización KOF 2017, el Informe de felicidad mundial 2017 y el Índice de emprendimiento global 2017, respectivamente. Se observó que los países con puntaje más alto en felicidad y globalización también tenían puntaje más alto en GEI. Se encuentra que la relación es altamente significativa y positiva. Se sugiere que los países que deseen promover emprendimientos empresariales no se centren solo en medidas convencionales de crecimiento como el PIB, sino que también se enfoquen en la expansión a través de la globalización e inviertan para la satisfacción y la felicidad de su gente.
