Default Direction of Piston Engine Rotation - Which Direction is More Efficient?

Are piston engines turning clock wise (as seen standing behind the plane) more fuel/power efficient than engines turning counter clockwise? - and will rotation direction make a difference if you are in Southern or Northern hemisphere?

What determines the design consideration for rotation direction of an engine?

And what about jet engines?
