Entrepreneurial Efficiency: An Empirical Framework and Evidence
This paper examines a particular aspect of entrepreneurship, namely firms' activities in adapting to idiosyncratic environmental changes by appropriately reallocating resources. It presents an empirical framework that examines the social value of firms' abilities to predict and adapt to the movement of idiosyncratic shocks. Using the method, the quantitative effect of firms' prediction ability on Total Factor Productivity (TFP) is investigated using data from Japan's Census of Manufacturing.
