Impact of migrant remittances on entrepreneurship in developing countries.
This thesis provides three essays on the impact of remittances on entrepreneurship in developing countries.
The first essay provides a macroeconomic analysis of the medium- and long-term effect of remittances on entrepreneurship in 86 developing countries.
The second essay provides a micro-economic analysis of the effect of remittances and financial sector development on access to finance for SMEs using a Probit regression.
Finally, the third essay empirically investigates the moderating role of government support in the relationship between remittances and all stages of entrepreneurship with a particular focus on the interaction between remittances and regulatory quality.
