Globalization and innovation in emerging markets by Yuriy Gorodnichenko ( )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 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

Returns to human capital under the communist wage grid and during the transition to a market economy by Daniel Münich ( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 36 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
Unemployment in East and West Europe by Daniel Münich ( )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this paper, we use 1991-2005 panel data on the unemployment, vacancies, inflow into unemployment, and outflow from unemployment in five former communist economies and in the western part of Germany (a benchmark western economy) to examine the evolution of unemployment together with that of inflows into unemployment and vacancies. The comparison of the transition economies with an otherwise similar and spatially close market economy is useful because it enables us to identify the main differences and similarities in the evolution of key variables, and thus draw conclusions as to whether different or similar factors cause high unemployment

Do institutions, ownership, exporting and competition explain firm performance? evidence from 26 transition countries by Simon Commander ( )

"We analyze a large stratified random sample of firms that provide us with measures of performance and each firm's top manager's perception of the severity of business environment constraints faced by his/her firm. Unlike most existing studies that rely on external and aggregated proxy measures of the business environment, defined to include legal and institutional features, we have information from each surveyed firm. Specifically, we use the 2005 and 2002 Business Environment and Enterprise Performance Survey (BEEPS) to assess the effect on performance of ownership, competition, export orientation and the business environment of the firm. We employ a variety of approaches to deal with the problem of omitted variables, errors in variables and endogeneity that plague studies in this area. We find that foreign ownership and competition have an impact on performance -- measured as the level of sales controlling for inputs. Export orientation of the firm does not have an effect on performance once ownership is taken into account. When we analyze the impact of perceived constraints, we show that few retain explanatory power once they are introduced jointly rather than one at a time, or when country, industry and year fixed effects are introduced. Indeed, country fixed effects largely absorb the explanatory power of the constraints faced by individual firms. Replicating the analysis with commonly used country-level indicators of the business environment, we do not find much of a relationship between constraints and performance. Our analysis brings into question an important part of the conventional wisdom in this area. It indicates that country fixed effects, reflecting time-invariant differences in the business environment but also other factors, matter for firm performance, but that differences in the business environment observed across firms within countries do not. Moreover, the limited firm- and country-level variations in the business environment over time do not appear to affect performance either. This suggests that the effect of business environment on performance and the analysts' ability to identify this effect are more limited than has been assumed to date"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
