    Banking Crises, Regulation, and Growth: The Case of Russia

    Recent empirical analyses of the relationship between financial system development and economic growth find that financial system development causes economic growth, is a good predictor of growth and that its impact is relatively large.

    Informed Capital in a Hostile Environment: The Case of Relational Investors in Germany

    Informed capital is a crucial ingredient to a well-functioning market for start-up finance, especially in times of difficult market conditions.

    The Effects of Short-Term Liabilities on Profitability: The Case of Germany

    Using data from Germany this paper examines the direct effect of non-financial firms' use of short-term versus long-term liabilities. We develop a structural model of a firm's value maximization problem that predicts that profitability of the firm will change if firms alter their use of short-term versus long-term liabilities. We find that firms that rely more heavily on short-term liabilities are ...

    Venture Capital versus Bank Financing in Innovative German Firms

    The paper investigates young firms' choice of capital source. Our theoretical model hypothesizes a positive (negative) relation between riskiness of the project (price of venture capital) and receiving informed equity. We test our predictions by employing a unique data set collected by KfW group. The theoretical framework is largely confirmed for the sample of bank financing and independent VC financing. ...
