Tokila A. and Haapanen M. Evaluation of deadweight spending in regional enterprise financing, Regional Studies . The problem of deadweight spending has been previously studied using diverse methods. However, regional variations in deadweight spending have not yet been considered. An evaluation of regional business subsidies in Finland during 2000--2003 is conducted. The analysis reveals regional differences in deadweight spending in proportional and, particularly, in monetary terms. Deadweight spending is dependent on many firm-, project- and regional-level factors, which also largely account for regional differences. However, there seems to be some regional variation in deadweight spending that originates from differences in the subsidy processes among regions. Tokila A. et Haapanen M. Evaluer les investissements non-productifs dans l'aide régionale à la création d'entreprise, Regional Studies . Dans le passé, la question des investissements non-productifs a été étudiée à partir de diverses méthodes. Cependant, la variation régionale des investissements non-productifs n'a pas prêté jusqu'ici beaucoup d'attention. On évalue les subventions en faveur des entreprises régionales en Finlande entre 2000 et 2003. L'analyse laisse voir des variations régionales des investissements non-productifs quant à leurs montants disproportionnés et, notamment, en termes monétaires. Les investissements non-productifs dépendent de plusieurs facteurs aux niveaux de l'entreprise, du projet et de la région qui expliqent aussi dans une large mesure d'importantes variations régionales. Toujours est-il que dans une certaine mesure la variation des investissements non-productifs remonte aux divergences de l'affectation régionale des subventions.

Untersuchung von verlorenen Zuschüssen bei der Finanzierung regionaler Unternehmen, Regional Studies . Das Problem der verlorenen Zuschüsse wurde bereits früher mit Hilfe verschiedener Methoden untersucht. Allerdings wurden hierbei regionale Abweichungen bei den verlorenen Zuschüssen bisher nicht berücksichtigt. Wir untersuchen die regionalen Subventionen für Firmen in Finnland im Zeitraum von 2000 bis 2003. Aus der Analyse gehen regionale Unterschiede bei den verlorenen Zuschüssen in proportionaler und insbesondere monetärer Hinsicht hervor. Die verlorenen Zuschüsse hängen von zahlreichen Faktoren auf Firmen-, Projekt- und Regionalebene ab, die zum großen Teil auch regionale Unterschiede erklären. Allerdings scheint es bei den verlorenen Zuschüssen einige regionale Abweichungen zu geben, die von den Unterschieden zwischen den Subventionsprozessen der einzelnen Regionen herrühren.

Valoración del subsidio perdido en la financiación empresarial regional, Regional Studies . El problema del subsidio perdido ha sido previamente estudiado mediante varios métodos. Sin embargo, todavía no se han considerado las variaciones regionales del subsidio perdido. Aquí realizamos una evaluación de los subsidios comerciales regionales en Finlandia entre 2000 y 2003. El análisis muestra las diferencias regionales en el subsidio perdido en términos proporcionales y, en particular, monetarios. El subsidio perdido depende de muchos factores a nivel de las empresas, los proyectos y las regiones, lo que también explica en gran medida las diferencias regionales. Sin embargo, parece haber algunas variaciones regionales en el subsidio perdido que se deben a las diferencias en los procesos de subsidios entre las regiones.
