    Kommunale Infrastrukturunternehmen zwischen Energiewende und demografischem Wandel (KOMIED) - Industrieökonomische Analysen mit Mikrodaten der Energie-, Wasser- und Abfallwirtschaft

    Kommunale Infrastrukturunternehmen stehen vor gewaltigen Herausforderungen. Zu erhöhtem Kostensenkungsdruck und verschärften Wettbewerbs- und Regulierungsvorschriften kommen weitreichende energie- und klimapolitische Zielsetzungen sowie Anforderungen durch den demografischen Wandel. Kostensenkende Erwartungen durch Privatisierungen haben sich vielfach nicht erfüllt. Neue Lö...

    Municipal infrastructure companies against the background of energy policy and demographic change (KOMIED) – Empirical analyses using micro level data of the energy, water and waste sector

    Municipal infrastructure firms are facing major challenges. On the one hand, they are operating under an increased pressure to reduce costs due to growing intensive competition and shifting regulatory processes. On the other hand, they have to fulfill new environmental requirements that result from new energy and climate policy objectives and demographic changes. Recent privatizations have not...

    They Played the Merger Game: A Retrospective Analysis in the UK Videogames Market

    We study the effect of a merger in a dynamic high-technology industry-the videogame market- which is characterized by frequent introduction of new products. To assess the impact of the merger between two large specialist retailers in the UK, we perform a difference-in-differences analysis comparing the price evolution of the merging parties to that of their 7 major competitors on an original sample ...

    Does State Antitrust Enforcement Drive Establishment Exit?

    Previous work has shown that state-level antitrust enforcement activity may have impacts on entry and relocation behavior by U.S. firms. Significant state-level antitrust activity may be an indicator of a perceived adverse business environment and it is found to deter establishment entry, particularly for larger firms in the retail and wholesale sectors. An obvious question is whether establishment ...

    Merger Externalities in Oligopolistic Markets

    We quantify externalities on profitability and market shares of competing firms in oligopolistic markets through the transition from an n to an n - 1 player oligopoly after a merger. Competitors are identified via the European Commission's market investigations and our methodology allows us to distinguish the externality due to the change in market structure from the merger effect. We obtain results ...

    Clustering Properties of Merger Waves: Space, Time or Industry?

    We study the degree of agglomeration of acquisition activity within clusters of temporal, geographic and industrial proximity based on almost 600,000 individual transactions. The findings indicate that significant clustering occurs in time and across industries, while the results on geographic clustering are mixed. This supports the view that merger waves are mostly driven by neoclassical motives. ...

    Ex-Post Merger Evaluation in the UK Retail Market for Books

    This paper empirically evaluates the price effects of the merger of two major book retail chains in the UK: Waterstone's and Ottakar's. We employ differences-in-differences techniques and use a rich dataset containing monthly scanner data information on a sample of 200 books sold in 60 stores in 50 different local markets for a period of four years around the merger. Since retail mergers may have either ...

    An Empirical Assessment of the 2004 EU Merger Policy Reform

    We evaluate the economic impact of the change in European merger legislation in 2004 and propose a general framework focusing on four different policy dimensions: predictability, decision errors, reversion of anti-competitive rents and deterrence. We find that after the reform, the predictability and the accuracy of decisions have improved. Yet, the policy shift away from prohibitions, which entail ...

    Competition Policy and Productivity Growth: An Empirical Assessment

    This paper estimates the impact of competition policy on total factor productivity (TFP) growth for 22 industries in 12 OECD countries over 1995-2005. We find a positive and significanteffect of competition policy as measured by newly created indexes. We provide results based on instrumental variables estimators and heterogeneous effects to support the causal nature of the established link. The effect ...

    Estimating Alternative Technology Sets in Nonparametric Efficiency Analysis: Restriction Tests for Panel and Clustered Data

    Nonparametric efficiency analysis has become a widely applied technique to support industrial benchmarking as well as a variety of incentive- based regulation policies. In practice such exercises are often plagued by incomplete knowledge about the correct specifications of inputs and outputs. Simar and Wilson (2001) and Schubert and Simar (2011) propose restriction tests to support such specification ...
