How are the behaviour and impact of Western multinational enterprises affected when investing in transition economies?

The result is an extensive analysis of foreign direct investment in the region and of the broader process of economic transformation. Based on sound economic theory and empirical research, this timely book is highly relevant to economists, investors, policy-makers, and graduate students and academics working on transition
Acquisition strategies in European emerging markets ( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 165 libraries worldwide
Since the onset of transition in 1900, mergers and acquisitions have become an important feature of business live in European emerging economies. Initially often related to the privatisation process, a multifaceted pattern of acquisition activity has evolved. Foreign investors acquire local resources, while adapting their strategies to the specific local context. This research investigates how mergers and acquisitions are adapted in the transition context, and how such adaptation influences corporate performance. This study investigates these issues by combining a questionnaire survey with eleven case studies in Poland, Hungary and Lithuania. It ioncorporates the post-entry dynamics with respect to changes in control and research contributions, and thus develops a dynamic perspective of international acquisitions, and a refined typology

Entrepreneurial entry: which institutions matter? by Ruta Aidis( Computer File )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 30 libraries worldwide
In this paper we explore the relationship between the individual decision to become an entrepreneur and the institutional context. We pinpoint the critical roles of property rights and the size of the state sector for entrepreneurial activity and test the relationships empirically by combining country-level institutional indicators for 44 countries with working age population survey data taken from the Global Enterprise Monitor. A methodological contribution is the use of factor analysis to reduce the statistical problems with the array of highly collinear institutional indicators. We find that the key institutional features that enhance entrepreneurial activity are indeed the rule of law and limits to the state sector. However, these results are sensitive to the level of development. -- Entrepreneurship ; property rights ; access to finance
Corruption as a Barrier to Entry: Theory and Evidence by Nauro F Campos( Computer File )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Conventional wisdom depicts corruption as a tax on incumbent firms. This paper challenges this view in two ways. First, by arguing that corruption matters not so much because of the value of the bribe ("tax"), but because of another less studied feature of corruption, namely bribe unavoidability. Second, we argue that the social costs of corruption arise not because corruption hurts incumbent firms, but mostly because it acts as a powerful barrier to the entry of new firms. Corruption sands and greases in tandem: it helps incumbent firms (on balance) and it hurts potential entrants. We put forward a model in which a bureaucrat chooses entry barriers to optimize bribe revenues. When the capacity to collect bribes is high, it is optimal to allow high levels of oligopoly power to incumbents. Conversely, the more avoidable are the bribes, the more firms are allowed into the market. These ideas are tested using a unique, representative sample of Brazilian manufacturing firms. Consistently with our theoretical model, we show that corruption (a) is ranked as the most important barrier to entry (above finance, taxes and regulation) and (b) while bribes' unavoidability is positively related to firm performance, the size of the bribe is not
Which Institutions Encourage Entrepreneurs to Create Larger Firms? by Saul Estrin( file )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and German and held by 28 libraries worldwide
We develop entrepreneurship and institutional theory to explain variation in different types of entrepreneurship across individuals and institutional contexts. Our framework generates hypotheses about the negative impact of higher levels of corruption, weaker property rights and especially intellectual property rights, and a larger state on entrepreneurs who plan to grow faster. We test these hypotheses using the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor surveys in 55 countries for 2001-2006, applying a multilevel estimation framework. We confirm our main hypotheses but we find no significant impact from intellectual property rights
