dc.description.abstract After the failure of import substitution programs many developing countries turned to export processing zones (EPZs) to promote growth and development through trade. However, in many instances, the performance of the EPZ model has been disappointing leaving many to question whether EPZs are good for reform. This dissertation will examine the institutional factors related to why EPZs emerge. Second, positing that domestic entrepreneurship is important to economic development, the relationship between EPZs and domestic entrepreneurship is examined. Third, it will examine the effects of EPZs on economic wellbeing controlling for factors which affect entrepreneurship.
