    What's Banking Sector Concentration Got to Do with Private Equity Market?

    The paper investigates the link between bank concentration and a country's buyout market. We perform a macro level analysis for 15 European countries during 1997-2007. We estimate the elasticity of the country i's buyout market to country i's concentration in the banking sector. Our major finding suggests that the more concentrated the banking sector is, the better it is for the size of the buyout ...

    Smart Capital in German Start-ups: An Empirical Analysis

    What kind of smart capital relational investors actually supply, especially in a bank-based financial system such as the German one, is still an open question. We divide smart capital into single components and conduct a survey with 85 German suppliers of start-up finance. The results show that the degree of 'smartness' is determined by the financial product used and partly also by the financiers' ...

    Extensive Research Does Not Imply Extensive Funding

    In Germany, two statistics examine the development and structure of public funding for research and development (R&D) in the private sector of the economy: the R&D statistics of the so-called "Stifterverband für die deutsche Wissenschaft - SV", a joint initiative of German industries to promote science an higher education (SV), and, secondly, the statistics of the "Bundesministerium für Bildung und ...

    Innovation, R&D Efficiency and the Impact of the Regulatory Environment: A Two-Stage Semi-Parametric DEA Approach

    This paper assesses the relative efficiency of knowledge production in the OECD using a nonparametric DEA approach. Resources allocated to R&D are limited and should therefore be used efficiently given the institutional and legal constraints. This paper presents efficiency scores based on an intertemporal frontier estimation for the period 1995 to 2004 and analyzes the impact of the regulatory environment ...

    Research Efficiency in Manufacturing: An Application of DEA at the Industry Level

    This paper analyzes research efficiency at the industry level in manufacturing for 13 European member and four nonmember countries during 2000 and 2004. A unique dataset was compiled that matches patent applications at the European Patent Office (EPO) to industry-specific R&D inputs from EU KLEMS. We find that Germany, the United States, and Denmark have the highest efficiency scores on average in ...

    Germany's Technological Specialization Assures Growth Opportunities

    Germany's economic profile gives reason to believe that the country will emerge strengthened from the current economic crisis. Germany boasts the world's highest share of value-added output attributable to (R&D) intensive goods and knowledge intensive services. At the same time, Germany possesses an extremely broad range of economic sectors that rely on R&D intensive goods and knowledge intensive services. ...

    Technology Portfolio and Market Value

    This paper discusses the impact of a firm's technology portfolio on its market value. Two concepts are used to characterize a firm's portfolio: the number of technological fields and the degree of relatedness within the portfolio characterized by the amount of joint occurrences of patents in technological fields. Based on a theoretical framework using an expanded Tobin's q approach, it presents evidence ...
