Title: The Effectiveness of Public-Private Alliances for Socially Beneficial Innovations : Evidence from Antibiotic Drug Development
 
Abstract:
Although cross-sectoral collaboration between the public and private sector can help solve society’s “wicked problems”, participants in these collaborative arrangements also encounter organizational problems. Organizational misalignment can slow down the pace of innovation, particularly with regards to the commercialization of innovation. This raises questions about the effectiveness of alliances in general, and particularly, cross-sectoral alliances involving
public and private organizations for developing socially beneficial technologies.
We address this question in the context of antibiotic development which is
characterized by market failure both on the demand and supply sides and compare the drug development performances of solo, within- and cross-sector drug development efforts.

Title: Evading Corporate Responsibilities: Evidence from the Shipping Industry

Abstract:

I show that the maritime shipping industry – handling above 80% of global trade flows – has evolved over the past decades to systematically evade “corporate responsibilities,” i.e., compliance with regulatory standards and potential tort liabilities. Shipping firms increasingly dissociated legal and ultimate ownership, fragmented assets in one-ship subsidiaries, used flags of convenience, and evaded end-of-life responsibilities with “last-voyage flags.” Microeconomic tests confirm that responsibility evasion, amidst global competition, is a dominant motive behind these patterns. These findings have implications for our understanding of corporate social responsibility, of extended forms of liability, and of the “dark side” of globalization.
