Basic Statistics on the Success Rate and Profits for Independent Inventors


Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice

1,095 responses were received from a telephone survey of Independent Inventors. The majority of inventors surveyed (89%) are male, and a plurality of their Inventions are designed for consumer products (47%). Conditional on commercializing their invention, and at development costs about 1/8 of those in established firms, Inventive efforts by independent inventors lead to gains virtually comparable to those of established firms. Their innovations survive for about as long as the average start-up. Gross profit margins are comparable to the pharmaceutical industry (29%). However, only a small fraction of inventions developed by independent inventors reach the market (6.5%). The probability of reaching the market is four to eight times less than for Inventions developed by established firms. Why do only a fraction of inventions developed by Independent inventors become commercialized when those that do commercialize are quite profitable and survive for as long as other start-ups?

Efficient Liability Rules for Multi-Party Accidents with Moral Hazard

The economic analysis of tort law is extended to multi-party accidents with unobservable actions. Due to the requirement of no punitive damages, the problem resembles a team production problem. It is shown that asymmetry in the agents' impact on the stochastic damage function can be exploited to improve ex ante incentives. This implies departures from the proportional rule, based on the statistical information contained in the circumstances of the accident. If a noisy monitoring technology is introduced, then monitoring can add enough stochastic identifiability among injurers to restore efficiency.

Factors for the Success or Failure of International Teams: The Special Case of International Research Projects


Journal of Managerial Psychology

Départements : Management et Ressources Humaines, GREGHEC (CNRS)

There appears to be a growing interest in developing large-scale international research projects on managerial subjects. Because of the relative novelty of these projects some practical advice may be useful for those who would like to create or participate in an international research project. This paper offers such advice based on the experience and perspective of an organiser of a symposium held at the 1997 Academy of Management Meetings entitled "Creating, managing, and benefiting from international research teams."
