Free to fail : creative destruction revisited by Huigh van der Mandele( Book )

16 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This challenging book tackles one of the most fundamental questions in economics: Why are commercial organizations more efficient than organizations in the public domain? It is generally accepted that the traditional answer (the fact that commercial organizations maximize profits) does not necessarily hold true. Finding a solution to this anomaly, as this book attempts to do, should therefore be a prime concern in economics. The authors believe the answer lies in the fact that even in a completely stable environment, all organizations will eventually fail irreparably. Organizations operating in the market are more efficient because, once in decline, they are 'free to fail' and allowed to be disassembled or even replaced. Public organizations that fail are more often than not protected and allowed to continue even though their efficiency is questionable. This fascinating and thought-provoking book will provide a stimulating read for academics and students with an interest in economics, business and management and public policy. -- from back cover

Market evolution : competition and cooperation by Arjen van Witteloostuijn( )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Market Evolution: Competition and Cooperation is a selection of papers presented at the recent meeting of the European Association of Research in Industrial Economics (EARIE). The volume brings together twenty high-quality papers reflecting frontier research in modern industrial organization. The contributions cover a broad spectrum of increasing theoretical, empirical and policy issues, including analyses of the nature of the firm, product differentiation, research and development, strategic alliances, information sharing in the banking sector, exchange rate pass-through in international competition, labor unionization and product rivalry, buyer-supplier bargaining, multimarket competition and related entry, entry and exit processes, multinational enterprises in the Third World, European integration and the restructuring of Eastern Europe. From a theoretical perspective, many chapters apply game theory to the analysis of firm behaviors and market competition. Moreover, a large number of the studies contain a significant empirical part, mainly by employing econometric techniques, to test the hypotheses derived from modern industrial organization theories. Data from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, the United Kingdom and the European Union are presented and analyzed

Returns for entrepreneurs vs. employees : the effect of education and personal control on the relative performance of entrepreneurs vs. wage employees by Mirjam van Praag( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How valuable is education for entrepreneurs' performance as compared to employees'? What might explain any differences? And does education affect peoples' occupational choices accordingly? We answer these questions based on a large panel of US labor force participants. We show that education affects peoples' decisions to become an entrepreneur negatively. We show furthermore that entrepreneurs have higher returns to education than employees (in terms of the comparable performance measure 'income'). This is the case even when estimating individual fixed effects of the differential returns to education for spells in entrepreneurship versus wage employment, thereby accounting for selectivity into entrepreneurial positions based on fixed individual characteristics. We find these results irrespective of whether we control for general ability and/or whether we use instrumental variables to cope with the endogenous nature of education in income equations. Finally, we find (indirect) support for the argument that the higher returns to education for entrepreneurs is due to fewer (organizational) constraints faced by entrepreneurs when optimizing the profitable employment of their education. Entrepreneurs have more personal control over the profitable employment of their human capital than wage employees. -- Entrepreneurship ; self-employment ; returns to education ; performance ; personal control ; locus of control ; human capital ; wages ; incomes
Market liberalization in the European natural gas market the importance of capacity constraints and efficiency differences by Steven Brakman( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the European Union, energy markets are increasingly being liberalized. A case in point is the European natural gas industry. The general expectation is that more competition will lead to lower prices and higher volumes, and hence higher welfare. This paper indicates that this might not happen for at least two reasons. First, energy markets, including the market for natural gas, are characterized by imperfect competition and increasing costs to develop new energy sources. As a result, new entrants in the market are less efficient than incumbent firms. Second, energy markets, again including the market for natural gas, are associated with capacity constraints. Prices are determined in residual markets where the least efficient firms are active. This is likely to lead to price increases, rather than decreases

Subsidiëring van podiumkunsten: beschaving of verslaving? : een onderzoek naar de invloed van overheidsbeleid, omgevingsfactoren, bestuur en management op de bedrijfsmatige prestaties van Nederlandse en Vlaamse gesubsidieerde podiumkunstinstellingen in internationaal perspectief by Pim van Klink( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in Dutch and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De kunsten hebben in Nederland en Vlaanderen jarenlang geprofiteerd van stijgende overheidssubsidies, maar door de financiële crisis kwam daar een abrupt einde aan. Overheden en kunstinstellingen zijn daarom genoodzaakt nieuwe beleidsstrategieën te ontwikkelen. Hiervoor zijn economische inzichten noodzakelijk. De auteurs ontwikkelen een theoretisch kader waarop overheden en andere instellingen hun beleid kunnen baseren. Zij concluderen o.a. dat de overheid instellingen niet stimuleert tot ondernemend handelen. Aanbevelingen. Recensie van Berend Jan Langenberg in: Boekman. 23(2011)89(winter. 108-109); Dirk De Corte in Courant. (2012)100(feb-apr. 48-49)
