  • Can IPR Affect MNE’s Entry Modes? The Chilean Case 

    Canavire-Bacarreza, Gustavo; Castro Peñarrieta, Luis (Universidad EAFIT; Escuela de Economía y Finanzas, 2017-10-30)
    This paper analyzes the effect of stronger Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) on the entry modes chosen by MNEs in the Chilean market. MNEs can choose between exporting, introducing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and ...
  • Can Licensing Induce Productivity? Exploring the IPR Effect

  • Does financial development promotes innovation in developing economies? An Empirical Analysis 

    Aristizabal, María; Botero, Maria; Canavire, Gustavo (Universidad EAFIT; Escuela de Economía y Finanzas, 2015-01-01)
    Using firm-level data from 2006 to 2013 for a set of developing countries, we examine the effects of financial development on innovation. Financial development boosts innovation by improving resource allocation and investment ...
