Country of Origin as a Brand

Slot, Irina (2020-09)

The increasing role of B2B exports in national economies gives rise to the question of how “country of origin” acts as a factor in purchasing decisions made by international marketers. Based on the moderating effect of uncertainty avoidance as a dimension of cultural socialization of the customer on purchase decision in a B2C environment, and the brand-analog character of country-of-origin labe...

Crowdfunding: the moderating role of the funding goal on factors influencing project success

Pinkow, Felix ; Emmerich, Philip (2020)

Purpose: The factors determining the success of crowdfunding projects is one of the central aspects for crowdfunding researchers. Most quantitative approaches recognize the amount of funds targeted as an important control. However, little is known about the impact of the funding goal on other factors that impact crowdfunding success. We hypothesize that the effect of crowdfunding success factor...

Scenarios for Coal-Exit in Germany—A Model-Based Analysis and Implications in the European Context

Kittel, Martin ; Göke, Leonard ; Kemfert, Claudia ; Oei, Pao-Yu ; Hirschhausen, Christian von (2020-04-20)

The political discussion to reduce the carbon footprint of Germany’s electricity sector, focusing on coal, is intensifying. In this paper, we develop scenarios for phasing out lignite and hard coal power plants in Germany prior to the end of their technical lifespan (“coal-exit”). Our analysis bases upon two coal-exit instruments, the retirement of coal generation capacities and the limiting of...

On Distributional Effects in Local Electricity Market Designs—Evidence from a German Case Study

Lüth, Alexandra ; Weibezahn, Jens ; Zepter, Jan Martin (2020-04-17)

The European Commission’s call for energy communities has motivated academia to focus research on design and trading concepts of local electricity markets. The literature provides a wide range of conceptual ideas and analyses on the technical and economic framework of single market features such as peer-to-peer trading. The feasible, system-wide integration of energy communities into existing m...

Enhanced energy system transformation through power and heat sector coupling

Bloeß, Andreas (2020)

Die Energie- und Klimaschutzpolitik Deutschlands hat ein zukünftiges Energiesystem zum Ziel, welches ökologisch, ökonomisch und versorgungssicher ist. In den Jahren von 1990 bis 2017 konnte zur Vermeidung von Treibhausgasemissionen der Anteil erneuerbarer Energien in der Stromversorgung deutlich gesteigert werden. Jedoch kommen ein Großteil des Energieverbrauchs und der Emissionen auch aus den ...

Consumers’ Acceptance of a Bio-circular Automotive Economy: Explanatory Model and Influence Factors

Wurster, Simone ; Schulze, Rita (2020-03-12)

Sustainability in the automotive sector and appropriate end-of-life (EOL) management options for car tyres are important and constitute global issues. There is currently an oversupply of EOL tyres and the potential of circular economy (CE) tyres and for bio-based (BB) tyres warrants further investigation. Likewise, BB and CE tyres might be an interesting approach to improve the overall sustaina...

Overcoming Barriers in Supply Chain Analytics—Investigating Measures in LSCM Organizations

Herden, Tino T. ; Nitsche, Benjamin ; Gerlach, Benno (2020-02-26)

While supply chain analytics shows promise regarding value, benefits, and increase in performance for logistics and supply chain management (LSCM) organizations, those organizations are often either reluctant to invest or unable to achieve the returns they aspire to. This article systematically explores the barriers LSCM organizations experience in employing supply chain analytics that contribu...

Middermann, Laura H. ; Kratzer, Jan ; Perner, Susanne (2020-02-18)

Does the increasing awareness of environmental risk exposure also affect intentions to create enterprises which address these social and environmental failures? Besides economic explanations that social and environmental needs and market failure create opportunities for sustainable entrepreneurship, it is less clear how cognitive processes and motivations related to sustainable entrepreneurship...

A Sales Tax Is Better at Promoting Healthy Diets than the Fat Tax and the Thin Subsidy

Kalamov, Zarko (2020-01-21)

We analyze how a sales tax levied on all food products impacts the consumption of healthy food, unhealthy food, and obesity. The sales tax can stimulate the consumption of healthy meals by lowering the time costs of food preparation. Moreover, the sales tax lowers obesity under more general conditions than a tax on unhealthy food (fat tax) and a subsidy on healthy food (thin subsidy). We calibr...
