The ownership pyramid is a framework to control a firm through a chain of ownership relations. Organizational structures in which multiple firms are linked through equity ownership are ubiquitous in emerging markets and in many developed countries. This paper focuses on the following two research questions: 1) What are the effects of pyramid inner structure on capital structure? 2) Do the effects of the inner structure of pyramid on capital structure vary with institutional environments in different regions in China?

Is there a significant wage increase for individuals who have earned a high school diploma? The "sheepskin" effect is actually the wage increase above what would normally be attributed to the extra year of education. The size of the effect, however, is not identical for all individuals but varies with their sex, race, or the continent they live in.

Does importing intermediates generate productivity gains that add to the gains arising from learning-by-exporting? To what extent is this also a source of gains for developing countries? This paper tries to answer these questions by investigating export and import activities of firms located in Egypt.

Since the globalization on the financial market it is more likely that both residents and foreigners may purchase and trade government bonds with each other. Considering this leads to a new modeling strategy which is adopted in this paper.

This paper compares the forecasting quality of two models and constructs a new forecasting procedure for the main macroeconomic variables. In this approach the influence of subjective decisions in the forecasting process can be reduced significantly.
