From Law & Entrepreneurship News:

"Small business owners may not have the time or money to overcome exporting barriers according to the study 'Costs of Developing a Foreign Market for a Small Business: the Market & Non-Market Barriers to Exporting by Small Firms.'

The study was written by Palmetto Consulting. The study examined barriers to exporting faced by a panel of South Carolina small businesses. "
