Frontiers und Laggards: Die Produktivitätsentwicklung deutscher Unternehmen

Das Wachstum der Produktivität in allen entwickelten Volkswirtschaften verlangsamt sich seit geraumer Zeit. Zugleich gibt es nach Analysen der OECD jedoch das Phänomen, dass es innerhalb der gewerblichen Wirtschaft eine kleine Gruppe hochproduktiver Unternehmen gibt, die weiterhin überdurchschnittliche Produktivitätszuwächse verzeichnen. In der öffentlichen Debatte und in Teilen des wissenschaftlichen ...

The human personality predicts a wide range of activities and occupational choices—from musical sophistication to entrepreneurial careers. However, which method should be applied if information on personality traits is used for prediction and advice? In psychological research, group profiles are widely employed. In this contribution, we examine the performance of profiles using the example of career ...

Business Cycles and Start-Ups across Industries: An Empirical Analysis of German Regions

We analyze whether start-up rates in different industries systematically change with business cycle variables. Using a unique data set at the industry level, we mostly find correlations that are consistent with counter-cyclical influences of the business cycle on entries in both innovative and non-innovative industries. Entries into the large-scale industries, including the innovative part of manufacturing, ...

Das gilt für Ostdeutschland wie für Westdeutschland. Ostdeutschland ist aber deutlich stärker ländlich geprägt als Westdeutschland. Dies ist ein wesentlicher Grund für die anhaltenden regionalen Produktivitätsunterschiede ...

“I Want to, But I Also Need to”: Start-Ups Resulting from Opportunity and Necessity

When unemployed persons start businesses, they are often characterized as necessity entrepreneurs because push motives, namely their unemployment, likely prompted their decision. Based on a panel data set of more than 2600 start-ups by unemployed persons, we show that not only push but also pull motives can be observed among previously unemployed business founders. Moreover, a third type of entrepreneur ...

What Makes an Employer?

As the policy debate on entrepreneurship increasingly centers on firm growth in terms of job creation, it is important to better understand which variables influence the first hiring decision and which ones influence the subsequent survival as an employer. Using the German Socioeconomic Panel (SOEP), we analyze what role individual characteristics of entrepreneurs play in sustainable job creation. ...

Firm Size and Innovation in the Service Sector

A rich literature links knowledge inputs with innovative outputs. However, most of what is known is restricted to manufacturing. This paper analyzes whether the three aspects involving innovative activity - R&D; innovative output; and productivity - hold for knowledge intensive services. Combining the models of Crepon et al. (1998) and of Ackerberg et al. (2015), allows for causal interpretation of ...
