About this product
- DescriptionThe existing literature in both public ecomics and financial ecomics often fails to consider how appropriate and effective public policy may be in promoting the venture capital industry. Public ecomics has dealt extensively with the effect of taxes and subsidies but has neglected the unique role of venture capitalists as active investors who provide t only funding but added value. Financial ecomics has emphasized the special role of the venture capitalist but has t focused on the real effects of venture capital in industry equilibrium or the role of public policy. This volume in the CESifo Seminar series brings together experts in public and financial ecomics to develop a theoretically and empirically informed international policy perspective for an era in which policymakers increasingly look to venture capital as a source of jobs, invation, and ecomic growth.The chapters in part I analyze data on the levels of venture capital fundraising in Europe, problems in the bank-oriented beginnings of German venture capital finance in the 1970s, and the inefficiency of Canadian labor-sponsored venture capital funds. Part II looks at the effect of venture capital on labor market performance, the importance of exit opportunities, and the effect of information inflows on the venture capital cycle. The chapters in part III take the perspective of public ecomics, reviewing the role of public policy in addressing potential market failures, improving the quality of venture capital investments, and affecting entrepreneurial business activity through tax policy.
