East Asian corporations Heroes or villains? by Stijn Claessens ( )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
East Asian corporations differ from their counterparts in other countries in important ways. Before the recent financial crisis these differences were viewed as one of the reasons for the success of East Asian economies. The crisis altered that view, and many scholars now argue that the weak corporate governance and financing structures of East Asian corporations are partly to blame for the recent crisis. This paper reviews several features of East Asian corporations, showing that they have high leverage and concentrated ownership, are typically affiliated with business groups, and operate in multiple industries. These characteristics affected the performance of corporations prior to the crisis as well as their ability to deal with its aftermath. Each economy's level of development also affected how these characteristics interacted with firm performance and valuation. Finally, the concentration of ownership in the hands of a few large families may have influenced economies' institutional development

The regulation of entry by Simeon Djankov ( Book )
30 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New data show that countries that regulate the entry of new firms more heavily have greater corruption and larger unofficial economies, but not better quality goods. The evidence supports the view that regulating entry benefits politicians and bureacrats
Who owns the media? by Simeon Djankov ( Book )
21 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: We examine the patterns of media ownership in 97 countries around the world. We find that almost universally the largest media firms are owned by the government or by private families. Government ownership is more pervasive in broadcasting than in the printed media. Government ownership of the media is generally associated with less press freedom, fewer political and economic rights, and, most conspicuously, inferior social outcomes in the areas of education and health. It does not appear that adverse consequences of government ownership of the media are restricted solely to the instances of government monopoly
The new comparative economics by Simeon Djankov ( Book )
23 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: In recent years, comparative economics experienced a revival, with a new focus on comparing capitalist economies. The theme of the new research is that institutions exert a profound influence on economic development. We argue that, to understand capitalist institutions, one needs to understand the basic tradeoff between the costs of disorder and those of dictatorship. We then apply this logic to study the structure of efficient institutions, the consequences of colonial transplantation, and the politics of institutional choice
Catching up with Eastern Europe? : the European Union's Mediterranean Free Trade Initiative by Bernard M Hoekman ( )
13 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Courts : the Lex Mundi project by Simeon Djankov ( Book )
22 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: In cooperation with Lex Mundi member law firms in 109 countries, we measure and describe the exact procedures used by litigants and courts to evict a tenant for non-payment of rent and to collect a bounced check. We use these data to construct an index of procedural formalism of dispute resolution for each country. We find that such formalism is systematically greater in civil than in common law countries. Moreover, procedural formalism is associated with higher expected duration of judicial proceedings, more corruption, less consistency, less honesty, less fairness in judicial decisions, and inferior access to justice. These results suggest that legal transplantation may have led to an inefficiently high level of procedural formalism, particularly in developing countries
