Reply to Weller, Mellewigt, and Decker
AbstractIn their constructive critique Weller, Mellewigt, and Decker elaborate some concerns on our paper on “De-Diversification activities of german corporations from 1988 to 2002: Perspectives from Agency and Management Fashion Theory”. There are three main points: the operationalization of de-diversifications, the application of the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, and the influence of an outlier in our data. We discuss each of these concerns in turn.
