Data Network Effects: The Example of Internet Search

Abstract:   The rise of dominant firms in data driven industries is often credited to their alleged data advantage. Empirical evidence lending support to this conjecture is lacking. In this paper, we show that data as an input into machine learning tasks displays features that favor the hypothesis that data is a source of market power. We study the search result quality for search keywords on

Choosing between Explicit Cartel Formation and Tacit Collusion – An Experiment

Abstract: Antitrust authorities try to detect and sanction existing cartels and hinder the formation of new ones. Firms nevertheless try to collude while avoiding sanctions, for example by colluding tacitly instead of explicitly forming a cartel. In this paper, we focus on differences in the communication of firms that either form an explicit cartel or try to collude tacitly. The latter may still

Evaluation of Bidding Groups in First-price Auctions

Abstract: In this paper, we analyze bidding groups that participate in procurement auctions. Our main question is to ask, whether in the absence of the joint bid, there could have been two or more independent bids and if yes, these bids yield a different final outcome. We utilize data from the Austrian construction sector and estimate models of first-price sealed-bid auctions with endogenous entry

Performance, Competition and Corporate Social Responsibility in Organisations

Abstract: We examine experimentally the impact of corporate social responsibility techniques on individuals’ performance and willingness to compete. Our baseline treatment adopts the Niederle-Vesterlund (2007) paradigm whereby individuals perform a task under piece-rate and tournament incentives, followed by an opportunity to determine which of the two payment schemes they prefer. In our

Mit einem „EU-Pakt für Innovation“ gegen die Populisten

Ein wesentliches Ziel der EU ist die Annäherung von Wohlstand und wirtschaftlicher Entwicklung zwischen seinen Mitgliedstaaten. Seit 2010 läuft aber vor allem in der Euro-Zone die Entwicklung zwischen der südlichen Peripherie und den übrigen Ländern auseinander. Dabei mangelt es in den südlichen Ländern weder an Kapital noch an innovativen Ideen. Vielmehr
