dc.description.abstractExploiting the unique economic situation after German unification, I investigate how exit decisions deviate between new firms in a transition and acomparatively stable market environment. Two competing exit mechanismsare considered: entrepreneurial self-selection via voluntary liquidation andexternal selection based on insolvency regulation. Distinguishing betweenthe competing exit modes proves to be crucial in semi-parametric propor-tional hazard-rate estimations. Comparing East and West Germany, I finddistinct education and size effects and a higher share of bankruptcy-relatedliquidations in East Germany. These results are argued to reflect differentindustry structures, capital and labor market conditions in both parts ofGermany.en_US
