Abstract

The central focus of this analysis is whether the economic growth of China can be attributed to an emulation of the development models of Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Based on the developmental state theory, an East Asian developmental state model is set up as a benchmark. The thesis uses an empirical analysis of the auto industry to highlight the performance outcome of China’s development strategy. The author confirms that China has evolved into a developmental state similar in its core characteristics to the three leading East Asian states. The model of development in China, however, is an innovative combination of factors from the developmental states, the legacies of the past command economy as well as of the adopted market economy mechanism including international capital flows.

Abstract

Ausgehend von der Überlegung, dass die in Österreich und China gängigen Managementstile in einem sino-österreichischen Joint Venture aufeinander treffen, ist das Ziel dieser Arbeit die Erforschung und Beschreibung eines hybriden Managementstils. Als Methodik wurden narrative Interviews verwendet; insgesamt wurden von den 37 sino-österreichischen Joint Ventures 46 qualitative Interviews mit 50 Personen durchgeführt. Das Ergebnis beinhaltet Erkenntnisse in Themenbereichen wie z. B. das Zustandekommen und die Motive der Joint Venture-Gründung, der Verlauf der Kooperation und auftretende Probleme, die Aufgaben der Joint Venture-Manager, kulturtypische Merkmale des Managementstils, der hybride Managementstil und seine Ausprägungen und die Erfolgsfaktoren in sino-österreichischen Joint Ventures.

Abstract

Socially desirable responding (SDR) is an often-reported source of bias in survey interviews. It describes the tendency of a respondent to answer in a way that is socially desirable rather than to answer truthfully. This response bias also threatens the reliability and validity of survey-based environmental valuation techniques such as the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM). Therefore, the study deals with the assessment of the conditions for the occurrence of SDR in CVM interviews. A behavioral model is devised to take into account a set of factors triggering SDR responses. The impact of these factors of SDR on willingness to pay (WTP) responses is tested. The results reveal that the relevant factors do not affect WTP statements simultaneously but rather influence them in an independent manner. These findings can improve future CVM studies by identifying respondents who are prone to be influenced by SDR.

Abstract

In China, inequality in social welfare is of rising political concern. This case study analyzes the determinants of well-being of rural households in Hebei using a secondary panel data set (1986 to 2006). One key question is how well-being was affected by institutional changes in times of societal transition. Based on population grouping, the author analyzes poverty and income development. The study reveals impacts of new possibilities to provide labor outside the own farm on the allocation of households’ labor time and the stability of full- and part-time farming over time. The assessments ground on agricultural household models, microeconomic concepts of labor allocation, and welfare theories. Different methodologies, e.g. inequality decomposition or hazard analysis, are applied.
