  • Global economic sanctions and export survival: Evidence from cross-country
           data

    • Authors: Ha Thanh Le
      Pages: 7 - 22
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of the article is to study the relationship between global economic sanctions and export survival. We also investigate the moderating roles of international linkages in the nexus of sanctions and export survival. Research Design & Methods: While we employ the new data base of the Global Sanctions Data Base introduced by Felbermayr et- al. (2020), export survival rate is defined as the ratio of the number of survivors to the entrants. We apply the structural gravity model combining the dyad panel dataset of 66 countries during the 1997-2014 period. Findings: We find the adverse effects of global economic sanctions on export survival. The marginal effects of sanctions become more sizable if there is a longer distance between the sender and the target country. By contrast, the adverse effects of global sanctions can be alleviated if the target country participates in global value chains or global bank linkages. Implications & Recommendations: The findings of our study provide vital insights to help policy makers to improve the export performance of countries facing global sanctions. Contribution & Value Added: This article is the first to investigate the effects of economic sanctions on export survival. The moderating roles of international linkages in this nexus are described in this study.

  • Economic resilience in developing countries: The role of democracy in the
           face of external shocks

    • Authors: Salah Ahmed, Mohamed Ali Trabelsi
      Pages: 23 - 34
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of this article is to examine the role of democracy in strengthening the resilience of developing economies in the face of exogenous negative external shocks. Research Design & Methods: To achieve our research objectives, we used the duration model to estimate how democracy can determine the probable duration of an economic growth spell. Findings: By examining a panel of 96 developing countries observed in 1965-2015, we found that democracy is a resilience factor, insofar as it helps to support growth spells in the event of negative external shocks. The results show that an improvement in democracy score is associated with an increase in the expected duration of a growth spell. The second finding is that some dimensions of democratic institutions like political participation and egalitarian inclusion can lead to a sustainable economic growth. Implications & Recommendations: The benefits of democracy for improving living standards in developing coutries. The study should be subject to further research as more variables that account for major shocks could be considered, such as political and civil unrest, internal conflicts, or natural disasters. These shocks may occur during a growth period and cause very serious disruptive effects. Contribution & Value Added: The originality of this work lies in studying the role of democracy in the face of exogenous negative external shocks through the duration model which represents an original empirical study.

  • Oil rent, entrepreneurial start-ups, and institutional quality: Insights
           from African oil-rich countries

    • Authors: Folorunsho M. Ajide, Kenny A. Soyemi
      Pages: 35 - 49
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of this study was to examine the moderating effect of institutional quality in the relationship between oil rents and entrepreneurial start-ups for oil-rich countries in Africa. Research Design & Methods: The study employed panel regression techniques that included instrumental variable (IV) estimator to analyse the data of 11 oil-rich countries in Africa over a period of 2006-2018. Findings: The following results emerged. (1) Oil rent’s impact is positive and significantly affects entrepreneurial start-ups. (2) The interactive coefficients of oil rents and institutional quality have a negative and significant impact on entrepreneurial start-ups. This means the quality of African institution reduces and leaks out entrepreneurial benefits of oil rents in African oil-rich countries. We establish that institutional quality’s threshold at which oil rent would accelerate entrepreneurial start-ups is 2.23 on a five-point scale. Implications & Recommendations: This study revealed that the ability of oil rents to consistently promote entrepreneurial development in oil-rich economies depends on the level of institutional conditions. This situation may create a growth trap for African oil-dependent economies because entrepreneurial start-ups depend on the quality of institutional foundations, which may position the growth inclusiveness and government actions on the right paths. In this context, our empirical findings reveal that African governments need to work on the institutional quality of their economies to reduce the institutional curse of oil rents on African entrepreneurial start-ups. Contribution & Value Added: The article advances our understanding on the nexus of entrepreneurship and oil rents. It is the first study conducted on oil-rich countries in Africa. Moreover, the work differs from the literature by examining the threshold level at which African institutional quality would meaningfully enhance positive relationship between oil rents and entrepreneurial start-ups.

  • Working capital financing and corporate profitability in ASEAN region: The
           role of financial development

    • Authors: Rahmat Heru Setianto, Rani Septiani Sipayung, W.N.W. Azman-Saini
      Pages: 51 - 64
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of the article is to empirically investigates the role played by financial development in determining the relationship between working capital financing and firms’ performance. Research Design & Methods: Employing data of publicly listed manufacturing firms in five ASEAN countries, namely, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand spanning from 2009-2018 resulted in 6,183 firm years observation. This study conducts an analysis using the two-steps generalized method of moments (GMM) estimator. Findings: The inverted U-shape effect of working capital financing on firm profitability is confirmed, indicating a trade off in utilizing short-term debt to finance working capital requirements. Moreover, new evidence was shown that firms which operate in more financially developed regions have the opportunity to utilise a greater percentage of short-term debt without destroying their profitability. Implications & Recommendations: Corporate managers should avoid using excessive short-term debt to finance their working capital requirement as the risk of refinancing and interest outweigh its benefit. Secondly, given the significant role played by financial development, policy makers should give priority to financial reforms and development to ensure firms have access to finance and, hence foster their growth for the benefit of economy. Contribution & Value Added: This paper contributes to the existing literature in two ways. Firstly, this is the first study to analyse the role of financial development on working capital financing and performance relationship. Secondly, the study extends the insight of this research area of a large emerging region that has never been studied, the ASEAN region.

  • Financial capital measure with item response theory: A didactic
           approximation

    • Authors: Henry Sebastián Rangel Quiñonez, Alvaro Mauricio Montenegro Díaz, Luisa Fernanda Arenas Estevez
      Pages: 65 - 80
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of the article is to present in a didactic and concise way the fundamental concepts of item response theory (IRT) and its possible application in the economic sciences and show the bias problem that occurred when estimating a latent variable such as financial capital in microentrepreneurs through IRT, assuming normal distribution in an unfounded a priori way. Research Design & Methods: We introduce a Bayesian hierarchical IRT model for graded responses where the latent traits have a skew normal distribution. Financial capital was measured by a survey applied to 384 microentrepreneurs from the metropolitan area of Bucaramanga (Colombia). The preliminary statistical analysis of data hints that the latent trait is not symmetric. Models that include a normal and a skew normal distribution were tested. Findings: We detected that assuming the distribution of the normal trait may overestimate the calculation of financial capital in microentrepreneurs, which would cause loans to be assigned without support. Implications & Recommendations: When applying IRT to economic matters such as in the measurement of financial capital, it is recommended to review the assumptions that this technique handles, especially the normality of the latent trait, since if assumed without verification or theoretical support can cause bias in parameters. Contribution & Value Added: An improvement is presented to the graded response model with normal distribution in IRT for the measurement of financial capital, paying special interest in providing a pedagogical explanation for a public related to economics.

  • Impact of market orientation on competitiveness: Analysis of
           internationalized medium-sized and large enterprises

    • Authors: Miklós Stocker, Lídia Várkonyi
      Pages: 81 - 95
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of this article is to identify the impact of market orientation on company competitiveness of internationalized medium and large enterprises present in Central Eastern Europe and/or Western Europe in the period of economic growth. Research Design & Methods: Quantitative large sample statistical analysis was conducted on a sample of Hungarian internationalized medium and large sized enterprises (n=119). Data was obtained by the survey method, MKTOR scale was implemented in the survey and financial data was also included. The sample is representative for size and the sample size is larger than required. Factor analysis was used to determine the components of market orientation, regression analysis was used to test the hypotheses and Chi-square test were used to determine differences in the elements of customer orientation. Findings: Market orientation influences the competitiveness of internationalized medium and large sized enterprises present in Central Eastern Europe and/or Western Europe. Among the components of market orientation, competitor orientation had the most significant and most powerful impact on competitiveness and on market performance as well. Interfunctional coordination had significant impact on adaptivity and operationality. Customer orientation, however, did not have significant impact on either competitiveness or its elements, because customer orientation became a threshold capability of internationalized medium and large sized enterprises which are present in Central Eastern Europe and/or in Western Europe. Implications & Recommendations: Executive managers of internationalized medium and large enterprises should focus on competitor orientation if they would like to increase their competitiveness and market performance, while they should maintain their companies’ high level of customer orientation. If managers would like to increase their companies’ adaptivity and/or operationality then they should also focus on interfunctional coordination procedures as well. Contribution & Value Added: The article is about medium and large sized internationalized enterprises which is an underresearched area and the sample’s representativity is also unique. The main contribution of the article is that customer orientation is a threshold capability of internationalized medium and large sized enterprises, and we also prove that market orientation and especially competitor orientation increases the competitiveness of internationalized medium and large sized companies.

  • Exploring the institutional pressures that affect international new
           ventures

    • Authors: Jurgita Butkeviciene, Jurgita Sekliuckiene
      Pages: 97 - 112
      Abstract: Objective: This article aims to identify the link between institutional pressures and strategic responses of international new ventures (INVs). Research Design & Methods: This article reviews and theoretically synthesises extensive literature from the institutional and international entrepreneurship theories. The discussion leads to the formulation of four research propositions. Findings: The relationship between institutions and entrepreneurial firms’ activities remains lacking in relevant research. Thus, given the constraints of INVs, the suggested propositions assist in identifying the nature of the institutional pressures exerted on entrepreneurial firms. Through the breakdown of the institutional pressure determinants, three groups of pressures are discussed. The text suggests that coercive, normative, and mimetic pressures evoke more active strategic responses of INVs, as internationally oriented, entrepreneurial, technology-driven firms. The institutions and INVs strategic responses may have a bidirectional relationship. At the same time, legitimacy constraints to INVs may involve more than one scenario of how the INVs behave, which converts to a set of various responses to institutions, which lead to embedded relationships with institutions. Implications & Recommendations: The formulated research propositions illuminate numerous practical implications, leading to future research agendas. Researchers studying international entrepreneurship and entrepreneurs will benefit from reflecting on the proposed framework’s dimensions and interactions. International new ventures need to legitimise themselves in various institutional environments. However, they can be active partners in forming their institutional context through progressive involvement. Another input is aimed at policymakers looking to shape the institutional environment. Contribution & Value Added: The theoretical contribution of this article lies in its introduction of a set of research propositions that explain the relationship between the institutional pressures and strategic responses of INVs and set a future research directions. The value-added consists in exploring institutional pressures that lead to more active responses of INVs because of entrepreneurial firms’ specifics and emphasising the role of INVS in the building of institutions.

  • Meta-analysis of determinants of venture capital activity

    • Authors: Adel Dalal
      First page: 113
      Abstract:   Objective: The objective of the article is to quantitatively systematise the existing literature on country-level venture capital (VC) activity and find the sources of discrepancy in previous studies. Research Design & Methods: This article collects studies that focus on venture investments across countries. I retrieved 840 estimates reported in 30 studies and analysed them using meta-analysis methods. The average effect sizes were estimated and corrected for publication bias. Then, I controlled for 24 aspects of study design and data in order to find the cause of differences in the primary results. Findings: The findings suggest that the average effect of the studied determinants of VC activity is positive and significant. Technological opportunities, macroeconomic conditions and financial market development show the highest effect which confirms the previous research. The choice of data source influences the results in a systematic way, while model specification does not affect the reported coefficients. The results showed that drivers of VC in developed and developing countries do not differ significantly, the same finding is obtained for various stages of VC. Implications & Recommendations: The analysis of existing literature delineates the research agenda for further enhancing the institutional, technological, and macroeconomic descendants of VC. It revealed that informal institutions have been studied scarcely and deserve more attention in future research. The findings show that VC is not heterogeneous across the stages of investment which is important for venture fund management. By scrutinizing different aspects of model design and data samples I provide methodological recommendations for further research. Contribution & Value Added: To my knowledge, this is the first meta-analysis of VC determinants. The research method allowed to quantitatively summarise previous studies and detect the between-study differences. This article collects all the coefficients of VC drivers that have been reported up to date while previous literature reviews focused on some limited sets of variables. The article contributes to existing theory by answering the questions regarding VC heterogeneity.

  • Entrepreneurial social identities and nascent entrepreneuri-al behaviour:
           Mediating role of entrepreneurial self-efficacy

    • Authors: Majid Murad, Sheikh Farhan Ashraf, Nausheen Syed, Muhammad Munir, Rehan Sohail Butt
      Pages: 129 - 143
      Abstract: Objective: This study seeks to investigate the influence of social identity theory (Darwinian, missionary and communitarian) on nascent entrepreneurial behaviour with the indirect effect of entrepreneurial self-efficacy. Research Design & Method: The authors collected data using self-administered survey from business, engineering and IT department students in order to examine 455 effective responses and verify the research hypothesis. Findings: The findings indicate that (Darwinian, missionary and communitarian) social identities are positively and significantly related to nascent entrepreneurial behaviour. The results also show that entrepreneurial self-efficacy is a key mediator that affects the relationship between social identities and nascent entrepreneurial behaviour. Implication & Recommendation: The findings have important practical and academic implications for practitioners, educationalists to develop entrepreneurial spirit among students to become an entrepreneur. Contribution & Value Added: This study is the first attempt which contributes to the field of social psychology and entrepreneurship by taking the entrepreneurial self-efficacy as a mediator and investigates the influence of social identity theory (Darwinian, missionary, communitarian) on nascent entrepreneurial behaviour among students in Pakistan.

  • The role of mindfulness and perceived social support in promoting
           students’ social entrepreneurial intention

    • Authors: Anh Ngoc Tuan Bui, Minh Pham
      Pages: 145 - 160
      Abstract: Objective: This study aims to demonstrate the positive relationships between mindfulness, perceived social support, and social entrepreneurship intention (SEI) using the theory of planned behaviour (TPB). Research Design & Methods: This study surveyed 525 students who have been taking social entrepreneurship courses of non-profit organizations in Vietnam. Data was collected through a pre-designed questionnaire at Google Form from August to October 2020 and analysed by structural equation modelling to verify the research model and hypotheses. Findings: The research confirmed the positive relationships between mindfulness, perceived social support, and social entrepreneurial intention (SEI). Among them, the role of mindfulness is the most important, because its impact on SEI is the strongest. This study has also shown that the components of the theory of planned behaviour have an intermediary role to strengthen the relationships in the research model. Implications & Recommendations: This study confirms the need to include mindfulness courses when training future social entrepreneurs to help them for acquiring the right attitudes and forming social entrepreneurial intentions. Contribution & Value Added: This study found that practicing mindfulness drastically changes entrepreneurs’ attitudes towards social entrepreneurship. In contrast, perceived social support makes these entrepreneurs display a higher level of self-efficacy in forming social entrepreneurial intentions.

  • Young consumer perception towards family firms: Relationship building and
           gender

    • Authors: Joanna Bednarz, Małgorzata Bartosik-Purgat, Tomasz Jastrzębski, Giuseppe T. Cirella
      Pages: 161 - 174
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of the article is to investigate young consumer perception of family firms (FFs) used in the process of relationship building. It also stresses the importance of gender roles within this representative group. Research Design & Methods: Following a literature review, a quantitative survey on a statistically representative random-cluster sample of 237 Generation Z consumers was conducted in the latter half of 2017 in Poland. The computer-assisted web interviewing method was used, and factor analysis was applied. Findings: Results indicate that young consumers perceived FFs as reliable, long-term businesses with a human-centred approach to clients. Tradition was the attribute that distinguished FFs on the market. Gender differences played an important role in the perception of FFs. Implications & Recommendations: Further research should consider the influencing factors for families from external influencers. This research initiates the process of influencing young customers and can lead to a model development that would describe the specifics of Generation Z in FFs. Contribution & Value Added: The study should be considered a framework for identifying ways to achieve competitive advantage of family-owned companies. From a practical perspective, this is an important implication for FFs’ owners and marketing managers who have noticed a growing concern of an aging target population.

  • Talented enough to be a business leader' An alternative approach to
           entrepreneurs’ traits

    • Authors: Przemysław Zbierowski, Milena Gojny-Zbierowska
      Pages: 175 - 187
      Abstract: Objective: The objective of the article is to identify character strengths that contribute to one’s success at various stages of the development of an entrepreneurial venture: opportunity recognition, the refinement of business concept, resource acquisition, survival, and growth. Research Design & Methods: The article is conceptual in nature. We propose a framework of character strengths and stages of development of the entrepreneurial venture, which is based on an exhaustive literature review. Findings: The article proposes that different character strengths contribute to one’s success at various stages of venture development: curiosity, creativity, open-mindedness, and hope at the stage of opportunity recognition; bravery, integrity, love of learning, social intelligence, and kindness at the stage of refinement of business concept and resource acquisition; persistence, self-regulation, zest, humour, leadership, teamwork, and fairness at the stage of survival and growth. Moreover, We propose that perspective allows entrepreneurs to accumulate experience and recognize and exploit further opportunities. Implications & Recommendations: The study has implications mainly for entrepreneurs (recommendation for higher self-awareness) and investors (investment in entrepreneur’s strength bundled with investment in the business). Contribution & Value Added: This study adds to the understanding of mechanisms through which personal differences influence entrepreneurial actions and their outcomes. It adds to our understanding of specific entrepreneurship phenomena like entrepreneurial alertness or business planning. Thirdly, it contributes to the understanding not only of market entry but also of pre-entry and post-entry phenomena.
