Firms' ethics, consumer boycotts, and signalling by Amihai Glazer( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and German and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper develops a theory of consumer boycotts. Some consumers care not only about the products they buy but also about whether the firm behaves ethically. Other consumers do not care about the behavior of the firm but yet may like to give the impression of being ethical consumers. Consequently, to affect a firm's ethical behavior, moral consumers refuse to buy from an unethical firm. Consumers who do not care about ethical behavior may join the boycott to (falsely) signal that they do care. In the firm's choice between ethical and unethical behavior, the optimality of mixed and pure strategies depends on the cost of behaving ethically. In particular, when the cost is (relatively) low, ethical behavior arises from a prisoners' dilemma as the firm's optimal strategy
Imperfect transmission of tacit knowledge and other barriers to entrepreneurship by Vesa Kanniainen( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper identifies several distortions which create barriers to entrepreneurship. First, in addition to the innate entry cost, there are entry costs caused by regulation. Second, union wage policies raise the opportunity cost of entrepreneurship. Third, inefficiencies in the transmission of tacit knowledge between generations of entrepreneurs can arise: with access to within-family ownership transfer, the outside market for entrepreneurship operates as a lemon & rsquo;s market. This problem becomes relevant when the economic life of a business idea exceeds the active life of an entrepreneur
Bequests, control rights, and cost-benefit analysis by Amihai Glazer( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consider a public project which produces a consumption good and which benefits future generations. Let a conventional cost-benefit analysis find that it gives higher benefits than projects it would dis-place in the private sector. Voters may nevertheless oppose the public project: the combination of a desire to control bequests and the lack of control over who gets benefits from a public project makes the public project unattractive. In contrast, private projects have owners, allowing parents to control whether their children will receive the benefits from such projects. Parents can therefore better influence the behavior of their children when they have the option of giving the children title to private projects

Entrepreneurship in a unionised economy by Vesa Kanniainen( Book )

Income taxes, property values, and migration by Amihai Glazer( Book )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We consider taxation by a Leviathan government and by a utilitarian government in the presence of heterogenous locations within a country, when migration from one country to another is and is not possible. In a closed economy, a utilitarian government may transfer income from the poor to the rich to reduce rents earned by absentee landlords. When the rich are mobile, a tax on them induces little migration because the tax will reduce the rents on land inhabited by the rich. A race to the bottom need not appear
Why to invest in your neighbor? : social contract on educational investment by Panu Poutvaara( Book )

Entrepreneurship, economic risks, and risk insurance in the welfare state : results with OECD data 1978-93 by Pekka Ilmakunnas( Book )

Initial luck, status seeking and snowballs lead to corporate success and failure : presented at CESIfo Area Conference on Industrial Organisation, March 2004 by Amihai Glazer( Book )

10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corporate success stories often resemble a snowball. We show how initial luck in hiring talented people, the resulting technological advantage, superior corporate culture, and statusseeking by workers and by consumers can make small initial differences generate large differences over time

Anonymous money, moral sentiments and welfare by Vesa Kanniainen( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some markets are prone to develop shadow transactions for the purpose of tax avoidance. Moral sentiments control the allocation of consumers between the legal and illicit markets. Such sentiments include self-esteem and social disapproval. The market solution leads to fiscal externality resulting from tax avoidance and highlights the conflict between private opportunism and collective values. Shadow markets may, however, enhance consumer welfare by limiting the pricing power of firms and by controlling tax collection. The paper develops a model of endogenous segmentation of markets between moral and immoral behavior. The legal producer can price the self-esteem of honest people, who can blackmail the legal producer with their option of visiting the illicit market. The model has implications for monetary economics: moral sentiments, tax rates, illegal transactions, and probability of being caught become relevant for the demand for money

Tax neutrality: illusion or reality? : the case of entrepreneurship by Vesa Kanniainen( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper shows that taxes which are understood to be neutral with respect to the marginal investment decisions may be distortionary with respect to entrepreneurial decisions. In particular, we apply an intertemporal model to show that a comprehensive income tax is distortionary unless all kinds of income are subject to the same tax rate and a worker's option to become an entrepreneur is accounted for. Similarly, the harsh condition of a uniform tax rate is necessary but not sufficient under "new view" dividend tax, cash flow tax, and ACE tax, so that the occupational choice is not distorted. In any case, informational problems may arise and lead to distortive effects
