  1. Attracting foreign direct investment: the public policy scope for South East European countries

    Bellak, Christian; Leibrecht, Markus; Liebensteiner, Mario
    Based on earlier empirical literature for Central and Eastern European Countries this paper attempts to analyze the likely impact of changes in corporate income taxes, in the endowment with production-related material infrastructure and in the institutional environment on Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) - and thus on one channel of regional development in South Eastern European Countries (SEECs). Specifically, we explore the scope for public policy to attract FDI separated by these three policy areas and across the SEECs. Our findings suggest that the potential for SEECs to attract FDI upon changes in these policy areas varies not only substantially between...

  2. A Reference Architecture for Providing Latent Semantic Analysis Applications in Distributed Systems. Diploma Thesis

    Dietl, Reinhard
    With the increasing availability of storage and computing power, Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) has gained more and more significance in practice over the last decade. This diploma thesis aims to develop a reference architecture which can be utilised to provide LSA based applications in a distributed system. It outlines the underlying problems of generation, processing and storage of large data objects resulting from LSA operations, the problems arising from bringing LSA into a distributed context, suggests an architecture for the software components necessary to perform the tasks, and evaluates the applicability to real world scenarios, including the implementation of a...

  4. Classical Free Trade: A Policy Towards Economic Growth and Development

    Morales Meoqui, Jorge
    The central aim of this dissertation is to make an unambiguous international trade policy recommendation for developing countries grounded on rigorous economic theory. As is generally known, trade models featuring increasing returns to scale and imperfect competition have challenged the mainstream case for free trade which is built upon unrealistic assumptions like constant return to scale and perfect competition. In this context, the core contribution of this dissertation is the restatement of the original free-trade case made by the classical political economists Adam Smith and David Ricardo. This restatement is based on the accurate interpretation of Ricardo's famous numerical example...

  5. A Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test for r Samples

    Böhm, Walter; Hornik, Kurt
    We consider the problem of testing whether r (>=2) samples are drawn from the same continuous distribution F(x). The test statistic we will study in some detail is defined as the maximum of the circular differences of the empirical distribution functions, a generalization of the classical 2-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to r (>=2) independent samples. For the case of equal sample sizes we derive the exact null distribution by counting lattice paths confined to stay in the scaled alcove $\mathcal{A}_r$ of the affine Weyl group $A_{r-1}$. This is done using a generalization of the classical reflection principle. By a standard diffusion scaling...

  7. L. Albert Hahn's Economic Theory of Bank Credit

    Hagemann, Harald
    In the mid-1920s L. Albert Hahn's Economic Theory of Bank Credit (1920) had become one of the most influential and certainly the most controversial book on monetary theory in the German language area. Hahn wanted to overcome the orthodox view that every credit has to be financed by means of savings deposited by the banks. Banks are producers of credit which is not limited by the amount of saving. Capital was seen by Hahn as the result of credit creation and not of saving. Over time Hahn moderated some exaggerations of the first two editions of The Economic Theory of...

  8. Thin Capitalization Rule vs Interest Barrier

    Göritzer, Andreas
    To be able to do business, companies have to be equipped with capital by their shareholders. Usually, this capital is granted to them as equity. Nevertheless, it is also reasonable for shareholders to provide debt to the company. In any case, companies have to onsider the differences in taxation regarding equity and debt financing. That is why for internationally operating roups of companies the differing legal frameworks between countries are crucial factors for making decisions in corporate financing (Obser 2005: 1ff), especially because interest expenditure due to debt financing is usually tax-deductible in almost every country and thus considerably reduces a...
