    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 ...

    The German Financial Sector: Male Dominance in Top Decision-Making Bodies Remains Pervasive

    In the German financial sector, the majority of employees are women, but it is still men who hold the top positions. With women making up only 4.2 percent of the boards of the largest banks and savings banks, they were still vastly underrepresented at the end of 2012 (up 1 percentage point from the end of 2011). The story is similar on the boards of the major insurance companies. The situation is somewhat ...

    The Impact on Earnings When Entering Self-Employment: Evidence for Germany

    Using data of the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) earnings differentials between self-employed and wage-employed workers in the German labor market are explored. Previous research based on US data reports lower incomes for entrepreneurs. In contrast to that, the findings of this contribution suggest the opposite for German entrepreneurs. They have considerably higher earnings than wage-employed ...

    Finanzsektor: Männliche Dominanz in Top-Entscheidungsgremien bleibt erdrückend

    Im Finanzsektor stellen Frauen die Mehrheit der Beschäftigten, an der Spitze stehen aber nach wie vor Männer. Bei einem Anteil von gut vier Prozent waren Frauen in den Vorständen der größten Banken und Sparkassen auch Ende 2012 noch immer die große Ausnahme (+1 Prozentpunkt gegenüber Ende 2011). In den Vorständen der großen Versicherungen sieht es ähnlich aus. Etwas besser stellt sich die Situation ...

    Occupational Choice and Self-Employment: Are They Related?

    Often, a person will become an entrepreneur only after a period of dependent employment, suggesting that occupational choices precede entrepreneurial choices. We investigate the relationship between occupational choice and self-employment. The findings suggest that the occupational choice of future entrepreneurs at the time of labor market entry is partly guided by a taste for skill variety, the prospect ...

    Offshoring and Labor Income Risk: An Empirical Investigation

    This paper analyses how increased offshoring impacts on labor income risk. It is therefore distinct from a large number of studies explaining the level effects of globalization on the labor market in that it takes a look at effects on the variability of incomes. It provides an assessment that directly connects labor income risk and offshoring trends in a panel setting at the industry level. Importantly, ...

    Foreign Bank Presence and Its Effect on Firm Entry and Exit in Transition Economies

    This study investigates the impact of foreign bank penetration in Central and Eastern Europe on firm entry. We demonstrate that the acquisition of domestic banks by foreign investors has led to reduced firm creation, smaller average size of entrants and increased firm exit in opaque industries compared to transparent ones. At the same time, the entry of greenfield foreign banks spurred firm creation ...

    Private Equity, Corporate Governance and Out-Performance of High-Growth Firms

    The paper investigates how Private Equity (PE) ownership influences out-performance of a high-growth firm, and whether it differs from the effect of two other important types of financial investors: banks and non-bank financial firms. We transform the levered return on equity into a unlevered return and empirically test on some 30 thousand high growth European firms whether Private Equity' or other ...

    Research-Based Companies Perform Better

    The past ten years have seen an expansion in industrial research. There has been a significant increase in the number of research-based companies, as well as in employment in research and development, and in expenditure in this area. Growth has been observed predominantly in companies in less research-intensive sectors and in small and medium-sized enterprises. Consequently, over the last decade, industrial ...
