    Berlin Lunchtime Meeting Management Practices: Company Leaders Often Overestimate Leadership Skills

    Dr Christos Genakos, Cambridge University and Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) at LSE London School of Economics

    Wednesday, 18 June, 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.

    DIW Berlin, Mohrenstr. 58, 10117 Berlin
    Schumpeter Hall, First Floor

    Comment: NN
    Chair: Dr Ray Cunningham, London, Director Anglo-German Foundation

    CEP's global survey of over 4,000 firms reveals huge variations in the quality of management practices and shows that

    • German managers tend to overestimate their own management skills compared with their company’s actual performance
    • German firms that most critically self-evaluate their management practices are the best run companies in reality
    • 15 per cent  of German firms are managed worse than the average firm in China and India
    • family ownership and the traditional practice of primogeniture – handing down the CEO position to the eldest son – are associated with particularly bad management practices
    • private equity firms, in Germany better known as Heuschrecken (locusts), are better managed than companies with other ownership forms
    • the productivity gap between US and European companies seems to be in reality a management gap
    The global study by the Centre for Economic Performance is supported by the Anglo-German Foundation based on its programme Creating Sustainable Growth in Europe (csge).

    Christos Genakos is a Lecturer, Fellow and Director of Studies in Economics at Selwyn College, Cambridge University. He is also a research economist at the Centre for Economic Performance (CEP) in the London School of Economics. His research focuses on Industrial Organization and Applied Microeconomics. Recent work includes welfare analysis of mergers in the PC industry, examining foreclosure incentives in the PC and server operating systems market, estimation of the “waterbed” effect in mobile telephony and evaluation of international management practices.

    Invited Lecture Malaria: Disease Impact and Long Run Income Differences?
    Lecture by Professor Christian Zimmermann

    What is the economic impact of malaria? This is a difficult question to answer in the absence of any reliable data and in the presence of potentially enormous endogeneity issues. This paper uses theory and calibration to investigate what we can learn about the cost of malaria. We also offer some policy advice. We use a stochastic dynamic general equilibrium model with heterogeneous agent augmented with epidemiologic features. This exercise also demonstrates how theory can be helpful in the absense of reliable data.

    Prof. Zimmermann is based at the Department of Economics at the University of Connecticut and presently guest researcher at DIW Berlin.

    Workshop HiCN's Third Annual Workshop
    Micro-Level Conflict Processes and Institutions

    Violent conflicts are a substantial barrier to economic development. Almost one third of the world's population lives in conflict-affected low income countries. Yet little is known about the effects of conflict on household behaviour,  household welfare and poverty. The Households in Conflict Network (HiCN) brings together researchers interested in the micro-economic and econometric analysis of the relationship between violent conflict and household behaviour.
