Introduction

Rather, enterprise should also be seen as grounded in mainstream resources, primarily market conditions which set the outer parameters on how much and what kind of ethnic enterprise can exist, which are themselves constrained by politico-legal regulatory structures ranging from national immigration and citizenship practices to local planning policy. The legal status of immigrant minorities is in itself a key determinant of whether self-employment is viable or even possible as a career choice. Similarly, the nature of the national economic regulatory regime can be decisive in creating or blocking market space, with ethnic entrepreneurs far more numerous in the relatively deregulated Anglo-Saxon economies (Collins et al., 1995; Light and Rosenstein, 1995; Razin and Langlois, 1996; Ram and Jones, 1998; Barrett et al., 2001) than in most mainland European states.
