We contribute to the literature on the heterogeneity of multinational enterprises (MNEs) and the relevance of firm and industry characteristics for analyzing the determinants of outward foreign direct investment (FDI). The focus is on the role of firm-level productivity and industry-level R&D when MNEs decide on whether or not to undertake FDI and on the(More)
A stochastic background of gravitational waves is expected to arise from a superposition of a large number of unresolved gravitational-wave sources of astrophysical and cosmological origin. It should carry unique signatures from the earliest epochs in the evolution of the Universe, inaccessible to standard astrophysical observations. Direct measurements of(More)
To determine whether central nervous conduction deficits are related to the degree of peripheral neuropathy somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) were measured after tibial nerve stimulation in 51 healthy subjects aged 39.3 (SE 2.0, (range 21-71) years and 100 insulin dependent diabetic patients aged 37.3 (1.5, 18-73) years. Five criteria were used for(More)
In addition to firm and industry characteristics, the heterogeneity of foreign direct investment (FDI) has to be taken into account when analyzing the determinants of outward FDI. We combine two firm-specific datasets on German firms with subsidiaries and joint ventures in the Czech Republic, compared to a control group of German firms without FDI in this(More)
Theoretical considerations suggest that the option of waiting under conditions of uncertainty affects the relative importance of firm-level productivity and distance-related transaction costs as driving forces of FDI. Yet the timing of FDI has received little attention in the empirical literature on FDI determinants. To help close this gap we analyze FDI(More)
