Price anchoring in Online Markets: an Empirical Assessment

Bogliacino, Francesco ; Cuntz, Alexander (2013)

There is a large literature in behavioral economics contradicting the empirical prediction of rational choice theory once applied to auctions. The issue is of particular relevance due to the large use of auctions in mechanism design. One of the heuristics that may induce biased behavior is anchoring, namely the possibility that uninformative information influences choices. In this article we as...

Standardization and international business: evidence from German micro data

Müller, Jo-Ann (2018)

Increasing globalization opens up market opportunities, but also results in increased competition. In order to meet the strong opposing forces for customization and cost efficiency at work at the same time, firms aim to simultaneously increase the level of product adaption and efficiency. Standardization can play a significant role for international businesses to achieve these goals. The objec...

Geschäftsmodellinnovationen in der Energiewirtschaft

Dizdarevic, Husein (2018)

This thesis explores the opportunities and challenges of innovations in big firms focusing the energy sector. It is also a sector that has become vital for a functioning economy as a whole, including its societal life and of the security of the nation. Hence, the dangers of disruptions in the energy market are of great concern. Anyhow, all assumptions that “not to innovate” might be a path of l...

Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden im stationären Sektor

Ex, Patricia (2018)

Die Finanzierung neuer Gesundheitstechnologien im stationären Sektor erfolgt oft über Entgelte für Neue Untersuchungs- und Behandlungsmethoden (NUB-Entgelte) als temporäres Erstattungsinstrument. Mehr als zehn Jahre nach ihrer Einführung gibt es kaum Studien über NUB-Entgelte und wie sie die Anwendung und Verbreitung von neuen Gesundheitstechnologien beeinflussen. Auch die Ergänzung einer Nutze...

Firm strategies and consumer behavior under market-based sustainability policies

Naegele, Helene Blanche (2018)

This dissertation studies different approaches to sustainability regulation. The author evaluates the effectiveness of several policy measures in achieving their objective and discusses potential unintended side-effects. Both depend on strategic firm behavior and consumer sensitivity. Chapter II considers the impact of fuel taxes on the fuel efficiency of new automobiles. The results rely on e...

Not just the what and how, but also the who: the impact of entrepreneurship educators

Steiner, Susanne (2014)

The profile of entrepreneurship educators is as unexplored as it is diverse. While many studies in entrepreneurship education (EE) look at students and their entrepreneurial learning process (e.g., Peterman and Kennedy, 2003; Fayolle et al., 2006; Pittaway and Cope, 2007; Müller, 2009), they have so far paid little attention to the profiles of educators. Educators’ profiles, however, might pla...

Entrepreneurship education in the age of effectuation: teaching strategies evidence from Mexico and Germany

Guerrero, Maribel ; Steiner, Susanne (2011)

The positive impact of Entrepreneurship on economic development has been supported by many research studies (Drucker 1985). Based on those, education and training have been confirmed as relevant factors in promoting and fostering an entrepreneurial perspective (Gibb 1994; Peterman and Kennedy 2003; Kuratko 2005; Pittaway and Cope 2007). Therefore, universities have increasingly incorporated ent...

Show me the money: the impact of funding on entrepreneurship education at German universities

Steiner, Susanne ; Kratzer, Jan ; Haase, Heiko (2013)

This article examines the current characteristics of Entrepreneurship Education (EE) at German universities. We first assess the degree of alignment between course objectives and corresponding contents on an individual course level. As a result, we find a low degree of alignment. In the second part of our analysis we show that the German universities in our sample predominantly use internal fun...

Resource orchestration as source of competitive advantage of cities

Berseck, Nadja (2018)

This doctoral dissertation responds to the call on the management community to refocus on real-world problems amid the current trend towards increasing urbanization. The first strategy scholar, who applied his model of competitive advantage of firms to nations, cities or places, was Michael Porter. Since then, scholars form other disciplines such as economics, economic geography, sociology and ...

Health care public reporting utilization

Pross, Christoph ; Averdunk, Lars-Henrik ; Stjepanovic, Josip ; Busse, Reinhard ; Geissler, Alexander (2017)

Quality of care public reporting provides structural, process and outcome information to facilitate hospital choice and strengthen quality competition. Yet, evidence indicates that patients rarely use this information in their decision-making, due to limited awareness of the data and complex and conflicting information. While there is enthusiasm among policy makers for public reporting, clinici...

Identifying Berlin’s land value map using adaptive weights smoothing

Kolbe, Jens ; Schulz, Rainer ; Wersing, Martin ; Werwatz, Axel (2015)

We use adaptive weights smoothing (AWS) of Polzehl and Spokoiny (J R Stat Soc Ser B 62:335–354, 2000; Ann Stat 31:30–57, 2003; Probab Theory Relat Fields 135:335–362, 2006) to estimate a map of land values for Berlin, Germany. Our data are prices of undeveloped land that was transacted between 1996 and 2009. Even though the observed land price is an indicator of the respective land value, it is...

The greener, the happier?

Krekel, Christian ; Kolbe, Jens ; Wüstemann, Henry (2016)

We investigate the effect of urban land use on residential well-being in major German cities, using panel data from the German Socio-Economic Panel and cross-section data from the European Urban Atlas. We reduce concerns about endogeneity by employing fixed-effects (within) estimators, with individual and city of residence fixed effects, while controlling for a rich set of observables. The resu...

Welchen Nutzen stiften projektorientierte Organisationen und welche Kompetenzen zeichnet eine projektorientierte Organisation aus? Welche Rolle nehmen Schlüsselpersonen bei der Entwicklung projektorientiert...

Exploring the determinants of health and wellbeing in communities living in proximity to coal seam gas developments in regional Queensland

Mactaggart, Fiona ; McDermott, Liane ; Tynan, Anna ; Gericke, Christian A. (2017)

Background There is some concern that coal seam gas mining may affect health and wellbeing through changes in social determinants such as living and working conditions, local economy and the environment. The onward impact of these conditions on health and wellbeing is often not monitored to the same degree as direct environmental health impacts in the mining context, but merits attention. This...

Ethics and privacy issues of critical infrastructure protection – risks and possible solutions through standardization

Wurster, Simone (2014)

Recent studies propose a paradigm shift in standardization strategies and research and the use of ethical aspects as an additional factor to explain standardization success. This article goes one step further. It focuses on specific ethical and privacy standards and introduces privacy as a new dimension of the interplay between standards nd innovation in the fields of civil security and the pro...

The interplay of patents and standards for information and communication technologies

Pohlmann, Tim ; Blind, Knut (2014)

ICT products are often interdependent and in some cases indispensably work together. Firms may thus compete on different market levels pursuing different business models to sponsor their proprietary technologies and to maintain market share for their products and services. Interoperability of products is a crucial factor for market success and firms evermore have to coordinate and set standards...

Paying for hospital care: the experience with implementing activity-based funding in five European countries

O'Reilly, Jacqueline ; Busse, Reinhard ; Häkkinen, Unto ; Or, Zeynep ; Street, Andrew ; Wiley, Miriam (2012)

Following the US experience, activity-based funding has become the most common mechanism for reimbursing hospitals in Europe. Focusing on five European countries (England, Finland, France, Germany and Ireland), this paper reviews the motivation for introducing activity-based funding, together with the empirical evidence available to assess the impact of implementation. Despite differences in th...
