  • Evaluating Inter-Sectorial Efficiency of State-Owned Bank Financing: A Hierarchical Game with a Two-Stage Malmquist Approach   Order a copy of this article
    by Ricardo Moraes, Peter Wanke, João Faria, Steven Caudill, Yong Tan 
    Abstract: This paper examines the efficiency of Brazilian productive structure due to public funding provided by its state-owned bank. We develop a hierarchical dynamic game between this bank and firms yielding investment as a function of subsidized credit, industry competition, and openness. Through a multi-sector two-stage data envelopment analysis model we find that the main recipients of funding were not effective in jointly producing aggregate outcomes. Finally, the importance of the degree of economic openness and the level of competition in the sectors indicate that consideration of these factors is essential to any comprehensive industrial policy.
    Keywords: two-stage data envelopment analysis model; efficiency analysis; economic openness; competition; industrial policy.
