Testing the Superstar Firm Hypothesis

The superstar firms model provides a compelling explanation for two simultaneously occurring phenomena: the rise of concentration in industries and the fall of labor shares. Our empirical analysis confirms two of the underlying assumptions of the model: the market share increases and the labor share decreases with increasing firm-level total factor productivity, providing support for the superstar ...

We propose the use of a control function approach to overcome the econometric issue inherent to the two-stage approach commonly used in the literature. Estimations are conducted separately for four industry groups, defined by technological intensity, to allow for non-uniform effects of agglomeration economies ...

Produktivität: Unterschiede zwischen Stadt und Land wichtiger als zwischen Ost und West

In Ostdeutschland ist die Produktivität nach der Vereinigung rasant gestiegen. In dem für die Leistungsfähigkeit der Wirtschaft zentralen Bereich der Industrie jedoch ist der Annäherungsprozess zu Westdeutschland seit der Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise zum Erliegen gekommen.
