Exit from Declining Industries and the Case of Steel Castings
Because of conflicts between owners, managers and creditors, closure of unprofitable plants may be more difficult for an undiversified firm than a diversified firm. An examination of qualitative and quantitative evidence on plant closures in the U.K. steel castings industry between 1979 and 1983 supports the view that firm effects matter and suggests that closure patterns may have been inefficient.
