Abstract

A cikk a Gibrat-törvény érvényességét vizsgálja a magyar mezőgazdaságban 2001 és 2005 között a tesztüzemi rendszer adatai alapján. Különböző specifikációk alkalmazásával - egyszerű legkisebb négyzetek, kétlépcsős Heckman-modell, kvantilisregresszió - a szerzők úgy találták, hogy a Gibrat-törvényt elutasíthatják a teljes mintára. Eredményeik szerint a kisebb üzemek gyorsabban nőnek, mint a nagyobbak. Nem találtak arra vonatkozó bizonyítékot, hogy az egyéni gazdaságok, illetve a társas vállalkozások növekedési pályája között strukturális törés lenne. Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) kód: P32, Q12, Q19.
