Identifying the determinants of entrepreneurship is an important research and policy goal, especially in emerging market economies where lack of capital and supporting infrastructure often imposes stringent constraints on business growth. This paper studies the impact of a comprehensive business and financial literacy program on firm outcomes of young entrepreneurs in an emerging post-conflict economy, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The authors conduct a randomized control trial and find that while the training program did not influence business survival, it significantly improved business practices, investments, and loan terms for surviving businesses. Entrepreneurs with higher ex-ante financial literacy further exhibited some improvements in business performance and sales.

MBA Professional Report; Based on our analysis K-MAX is an attractive alternative to current methods of resupply. These findings led to our conclusion that the K-MAX is a program worthy of DoD investment and becoming a program of record. The concept for the utilization of unmanned aircraft system (UAS) capability in support of logistics in operation enduring freedom (OEF) is in response to a United States Marine Corps urgent needs requirement. This capability significantly decreases the ground convoy requirement. In addition, the introduction of UAS would reduce American forces' exposure to exterior enemy threats while conducting resupply missions. The Cargo UAS (CUAS) program is a Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM) initiative. The Marines' main interest in the program is the ability to have a system that can operate autonomously beyond line of sight with GPS en route waypoint navigation and be controlled remotely at designated cargo delivery locations. The purpose of this study is to estimate potential cost savings in the form of resource human life valuations. This study conducts a business case analysis (BCA) comparing the estimated costs of the UAS program to the current methods for providing logistical support through traditional ground convoys...

peer-reviewed; The extraordinary growth of the Irish economy - the ‘Celtic Tiger’ - since the mid-1990s has attracted a great deal of interest, commentary and research. Indeed, many countries are now looking to Ireland as an economic development role model, and The Sapir Report (2003) has suggested that Ireland should be seen as providing key lessons for other EU countries with regards to realising the objectives set out in the Lisbon Agenda. Much of the discussion of Ireland’s growth has focussed around growth triggers such as: the long term consequences of fiscal stabilisation of the late 1980s; EU structural funds; education; wage moderation; devaluations of the Irish punt. From an industrial policy perspective, the focus has been on the importance of FDI inflows and to a lesser extent on the performance of an indigenous stock of firms to Ireland’s growth record. A notable absence from the industrial policy discourse on the ‘Celtic Tiger’ has been any consideration of the role of new business venture creation and entrepreneurship. In this paper we use unpublished annual Irish VAT data for the period 1988-2004 to provide the first detailed look at national and regional trends in business birth and death rates in Ireland. We also undertake a sub-national analysis of the Irish VAT data to understand more clearly the importance of new venture creation to past and emerging spatial trends in Ireland. Our conclusion is that new business formation made no detectable contribution to the acceleration of Ireland’s growth in the late 1990s.
