Business groups in Emerging Economies
Fulvio Castellacci (TIK Centre, University of Oslo) and Ishtiaq Pasha Mahmood (National University of Singapore, Business School) have guest edited a Special Issue of the Review of Economics and Institutions on “Business groups in Emerging Economies” (Winter-Spring 2015).
New research on economic groups
The existence, ubiquity and remarkable dynamics of business groups in emerging markets has stimulated a large amount of research, which has investigated the reasons for the emergence of groups, their ownership structure, their differentiation and vertical integration patterns, and their economic performance.
However, there is still more limited evidence about business groups’ strategies, i.e. how groups organize their business activities and what makes them more (or less) successful than independent enterprises. This Special Issue collects new research on economic groups network and internationalization strategies. The articles in the special issues are available here.
