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.

    In January 2009, the German Federal Network Agency introduced incentive regulation for the electricity distribution sector based on results obtained from econometric and nonparametric benchmarking analysis. One main problem for the regulator in assigning the relative efficiency scores is unobserved firm-specific factors such as network and technological differences. Comparing the efficiency of different ...

    Banken werden immer größer

    Die Lehman-Insolvenz förderte die hohe Interdependenz und Ansteckungsgefahr im Bankensektor zu Tage. Die Vielzahl der gegenseitigen Kredit- und Anleihegeschäfte macht insbesondere die Insolvenz einer Großbank zum unkalkulierbaren Risiko. Um dieser Geiselhaft zu entkommen, wollen Aufsicht und Politik seit längerem das fremdfinanzierte Wachstum der Banken begrenzen. Dieses Bemühen steht beispielsweise ...

    Removing Cross-Border Capacity Bottlenecks in the European Natural Gas Market: A Proposed Merchant-Regulatory Mechanism

    We propose a merchant-regulatory framework to promote investment in the European natural gas network infrastructure based on a price cap over two-part tariffs. As suggested by Vogelsang (2001) and Hogan et al. (2010), a profit maximizing network operator facing this regulatory constraint will intertemporally rebalance the variable and fixed part of its two-part tariff so as to expand the congested ...
