Entrepreneurship Professor Peter Klein cowrites Strategic Management Journal Article | Economizing and strategizing: How coalitions and transaction costs shape value creation and appropriation
[8/10/2020]
ABSTRACT | Research has examined how "economizing" and "strategizing" mechanisms interact in driving competitive outcomes, but the role of coalitions in this process has received little attention. Coalitions are formed to create more value (i.e., economizing) and to strengthen competitive positions (i.e., strategizing). Based on a formal coalitional model, we derive several unintuitive results. We show that economizing actions may backfire because creating more value may lead other players to strategize more aggressively, offsetting the additional value creation. Moreover, creating countervailing power—that is, building a coalition against players with significant power such as monopolists—not only allows the coalition to appropriate more value, but may also benefit the powerful trading partner by reducing competition among the coalition members. Coalition‐formation can hurt coalitions members by reducing economizing investments.

Professor Peter Klein Joins Mises Media to Discuss Part Six of Human Action
[4/24/2020]
Professor Peter Klein from Baylor University joins the show to discuss Part Six of Human Action, where Mises presents his exposition of interventionism in all its manifestations. Mises breaks socialism down into Soviet and German versions; the first purely bureaucratic (state ownership) and the second nominally private but state-directed. He gives us a contrasting definition of laissez-faire, the choice of freedom over government omnipotence. Successive chapters take readers through taxation, restrictionism (tariffs, regulations, labor laws), and price controls (goods, wages, interest rates).

Entrepreneurship Professor Matthew Wood's Editorial on the Importance of Specialized A-level Entrepreneurship Journals is Now Online
[3/17/2020]
ABSTRACT | In this editorial, I seek to inform entrepreneurship scholars about the significance of unequivocal "A" level entrepreneurship journals for the continued ascent of entrepreneurship as a universally recognized "mainstream" academic field. Drawing insights from research on intellectual movements and the evolution of academic fields, I take stock of entrepreneurship as a community of scholars mobilizing elements of distinctiveness and legitimacy to elevate the status of the field. Doing so, I offer three field level observations on the primacy of unequivocal "A" journals for advancing the field. I then delineate a set of role related implications for members of the community, including authors, senior scholars, and newcomers to the field. Finally, I entertain some common objections to emphasizing journal status as a mechanism in entrepreneurship's upsurge to "mainstream" academic field.

Dr. Peter Klein Explains the Importance of Being Transaction Cost Savvy in Mises Institute "Economics for Entrepreneurs" Podcast
[7/9/2019]
Hunter Hastings and Peter Klein emphasize profitable value creation as the role of the entrepreneur. Managing costs can contribute to profitability — but there are some costs that are not easy to calculate and not even that easy to identify in some cases. They are not captured by traditional cost accounting. Economists call them transaction costs. They are the costs of acquiring, assembling, monitoring and managing and, in some cases, discarding or re-purposing the resources and assets your firm utilizes to produce output. They are not production costs per se; they are not value creation costs. They’re administrative and managerial costs.

[5/14/2018]
"Because Science!" has become a popular refrain. I'm not just talking about climate studies. Headline writers love to say this.

This kind of language is meant to be a conversation-stopper. If a scientific study — i.e., a laboratory experiment or a robust statistical analysis of secondary data — has proven something, it must be accepted as fact.

Peter Klein pens SSRN paper with Nicolai Foss: Entrepreneurial Opportunities: Who Needs Them?
[2/20/2018]
ABSTRACT: Debate in management research on the status of the opportunity construct is now more than a decade old. We argue that the debate has led to little additional insight in entrepreneurship and we develop the case for abandoning the construct altogether. Uncertainty is central to entrepreneurship and innovation yet absent from opportunity-based approaches. We offer instead a "judgment-based view" of entrepreneurship which revolves around the nexus of resource heterogeneity and uncertainty and is operationalized in the "Beliefs-Actions-Results" (BAR) framework.

Peter Klein pens SSRN paper with Nicolai Foss: Stakeholders and Corporate Social Responsibility: An Ownership Perspective
[2/12/2018]
Abstract: We argue that the stakeholder and CSR literatures can benefit from more systematic thinking about ownership. We discuss general notions of ownership in economics and law and the entrepreneurial notion of ownership we have developed in prior work. On this basis, we argue that stakeholder theory needs to deal more systematically with ownership as an economic function that can be exercised with greater or lesser ability, may be complementary to other economic functions, and works better when assigned to homogeneous groups. Some stakeholder groups are likely to lack what we call "ownership competence," even if they have made relationship-specific investments, in part because of diverse interests. We also discuss CSR from the perspective of ownership and support Friedman's original position, but with a twist. The point of Fried-man's paper is not that firms "should" maximize profits, but that managerial pursuit of "socially responsible" activities in a discretionary way imposes costs on owners. We suggest this problem is exacerbated with entrepreneurial managers who can devise new ways to disguise self-interested actions as CSR initiatives.
