    Risikobereitschaft und Unternehmenserfolg

    Neu gegründete Unternehmen halten sich besonders lange am Markt, wenn die Gründer eine mittlere Risikobereitschaft aufweisen. Dies zeigt eine aktuelle empirische Studie. Sind die Unternehmer sehr risikoscheu oder aber besonders risikofreudig, hat dies negative Auswirkungen auf die Überlebensdauer des Unternehmens. Die Wahrscheinlichkeit des frühzeitigen Scheiterns ist dann deutlich höher.

    Italy Must Foster High Growth Industries

    Italy has yet to recover from the economic consequences of the financial and sovereign debt crisis that began more than a decade ago. In addition to losing 1.4 million jobs across the manufacturing and construction sectors, new industries driving growth across the EU, such as knowledge-intensive services, are instead stagnating in Italy.

    The Greek Private Sector Remains Full of Untapped Potential

    Private businesses’ nominal value added in Greece has fallen by 38 percent over the last ten years. Micro firms were hit particularly hard.

    The German mechanical engineering industry, dominated by medium-sized companies, is greatly successful - both on the domestic and on the international market. A first analysis conducted by DIW Berlin reveals that this success cannot be attributed to a better exploitation of potential efficiencies - mechanical engineering is about as efficient as other key sectors (for instance the chemical industry). ...

    Microlending: Is There Demand for Such Loans in Germany?

    A lack of financial means is viewed as a key reason why small businesses fail. Therefore, also in Germany several institutions tried to establish microloans as a financing tool.
