Returns to human capital under the communist wage grid and during the transition to a market economy by Daniel Münich( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under communism, workers had their wages set according to a centrally-determined wage grid. In this paper are used new micro data on men to estimate returns to human capital under the communist wage grid and during the transition to a market economy. There are used data from the Czech Republic because it is a leading transition economy in which the communist grid remained intact until the very end of the communist regime. The estimates indicate that men's wage-experience profile was concave in both regimes and on average it did not change from the communist to the transition period. However, the 'de novo' private firms display a more concave profile than SOEs and public administration. Contrary to earlier studies it is shown that men's inter-industry wage structure changed substantially between 1989 and 1996

Foreign investment, corporate ownership, and development : are firms in emerging markets catching up to the world standard? by Klara Sabirianova Peter( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Economic development implies that the efficiency of firms in developing countries is approaching that of firms in advanced economies. We examine the extent of this convergence in the Czech Republic and Russia, economies that represent alternative models of implementing development policies, often referred to as the Washington Consensus, that have promoted privatization, competition and foreign investment. We also test hypotheses positing that only firms near the efficiency frontier benefit from these policies and catch up. Using 1992-2000 panel data on virtually all industrial firms in each country, we find that privatization to domestic owners did not markedly improve the efficiency of firms; domestic firms are not catching up to the (world) efficiency standard given by foreign-owned firms; and the distance of the Russian firms to the efficiency frontier is much larger than that of the Czech firms and continued to grow for most firms beyond 1997 while remaining constant in the Czech Republic. Domestic firms closer to the frontier are not more likely to catch up than firms further from the frontier although foreign firms do exhibit this behavior. Foreign-owned firms are increasingly displacing domestic firms in the top deciles of the overall distribution of efficiency, due in part to slower "learning" by domestic firms, higher efficiency of foreign startups, and foreigners' acquisitions of more efficient domestic firms. The Washington Consensus policies have not enabled domestic firms in either country to start catching up to the world standard"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
Globalization and innovation in emerging markets by Yuriy Gorodnichenko( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalization brings opportunities and pressures for domestic firms in emerging markets to innovate and improve their competitive position. Using data on firms in 27 transition economies, we test for the effects of globalization through the impact of increased competition and foreign direct investment on domestic firms' efforts to innovate (raise their capability) by upgrading their technology, improving the quality of their product or service, or acquiring certification. We find that competition has a negative effect on innovation, especially for firms further from the efficiency frontier, and we do not find support for an inverted U effect of competition on innovation. We show that the supply chain of multinational enterprises and international trade are important channels for domestic firms' innovation. We detect no evidence that firms in a more pro-business environment are more likely to display a positive or inverted U relationship between competition and innovation, or that they are more sensitive to foreign presence
