On the Ideal Duration of Entrepreneurial Resources Commitment  [PDF]
Panagiotis E. Petrakis
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2010.11006
Abstract: The paper proposes that the entrepreneur’s perception of time in the form of average ideal duration of entre-preneurial resources commitment is an important personal trait. The entrepreneur develops a particular checking filter for the entrepreneurial involvement on which the evaluation of entrepreneurial opportunities is based. The concept of ideal time dimension of entrepreneurial engagement is crucially related to the de-velopment of structural prototype prevailing in space and time. Three main influences have been located with respect to the formation of duration on entrepreneurial commitment: microeconomic influences, long-term macro-environmental influences and short-term macro-environmental influences.
Entrepreneurship, Transaction Costs and Cultural Background
Panagiotis E. Petrakis,Dionysis G. Valsamis
International Business Research , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/ibr.v6n5p55
Abstract: This paper aims to explore the connections between transaction costs and economic institutions on the one hand, and the group of variables describing cultural background on the other. By improving transaction characteristics and economic institutions, we can increase the entrepreneurship rates of the society. The paper tries to explore this relationship. Transaction cost and institutional variables are analysed using a principal component analysis and OLS. The results confirm the original working hypothesis of the existence of a relationship between transaction costs and culture. The component of cultural characteristics having a pro-growth orientation reduces transaction costs and enhances economic institutions, while the component of cultural characteristics that are reflected in the pro-social characteristics of cultural background increase it. A positive relationship between entrepreneurial variable and the transaction and economic institutions is revealed.
Informal Financing of Small – Medium Enterprise Sector: The Case of Greece  [PDF]
Panagiotis Petrakis, Konstantinos Eleftheriou
Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2009, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2009.24045
Abstract: In this paper, we attempt to find a “channel” through which Greek economy can exhibit a relative “resistance” in a credit crunch. For this purpose, we specify an error correction model so as to test the relationship between corporate bank loans and commercial papers comprised of post-dated cheques and bills of exchange. The results show that corporate bank loans and cheques - bills of exchange are substitutes. This finding combined with the fact that in Greece, the issuance of these papers is positively connected with the informal economic activity which in turn rises during economic downturns, has a strong economic implication regarding the ability of Greek economy to partly “amortize” the shocks connected with the current financial crisis.
Time and Risk Entrepreneurial Characteristics of Growth: The Case of Persisted Light Industrial Prototypes  [PDF]
P. E. Petrakis
iBusiness (IB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2010.21002
Abstract: This article is about the role of entrepreneurial perception of time and risk vis à vis structural change and growth. Entrepreneurship is a basic constituent element of social capital which in turn is a productive lubricant of the growth process. Different structural entrepreneurial prototypes with respect to time and risk have different structural change effects. Those structural changes (and any structural changes) are not neutral as far as the implications of growth rate changes are concerned. Therefore the time and risk characteristics of active entrepreneurship are reflected in the growth process either in the form of structural change and/or in the form of growth rate change.
Cultural Background and Economic Development Indicators: European South Vs European North  [PDF]
P.E. Petrakis
Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.23035
Abstract: This paper examines the relationship between cultural background and economic development. We focus on the example of Greece in order to analyze the cultural disparities between the Mediterranean and the North-ern European countries. We find that there is a common cultural model characterizing the Southern European nations, which spans the Mediterranean coast, from Portugal to Turkey. These countries are characterized by high uncertainty and absence of future orientation. On the other hand the cultural background in Northern European countries is found on individualism. The paper shows that the cultural values model is mirrored in the basic traits characterizing the economic and business environment of the areas (North-South) under examination. The differential cultural background is reflected in the basic economic and social developmental indicators in a consistent way.
A Nonlinear Control Model of Growth, Risk and Structural Change  [PDF]
P. E. Petrakis, S. Kotsios
Intelligent Information Management (IIM) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/iim.2010.22010
Abstract: Uncertainty is perceived as the means of removing the obstacles to growth through the activation of Knig- htian entrepreneurship. A dynamic stochastic model of continuous-time growth is proposed and empirically tested, including equilibrating and creative entrepreneurial activity. We find that uncertainty affects economic growth and the rate of return, and causes structural changes in portfolio shares for the two types of entrepreneurial events. Structural change depends mainly on the intertemporal rate of substitution, productiv-ity ratios, and finally intersectoral difference in return and risk.
Discrepancies in Financial Performance between Domestic and Foreign Owned Enterprises: The case of Greece
Dionisis Valsamis,Marina-Selini Katsaiti,Panagiotis Petrakis
International Journal of Economics and Finance , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ijef.v3n5p76
Abstract: This study examines whether there are differences between domestic and foreign owned firms operating in Greece, and in particular it focuses on financial management characteristics of the firms under investigation. The data come from the individual companies’ balance sheets for the year 2008. The firms under investigation are grouped into two categories based on the origin of their capital share. Using a non-linear model, we arrive at the following results: foreign enterprises have higher use of capital, manage more financial elements, have more access to long-tern borrowing, while they fall short against domestic firms in short term financing. Finally, foreign firms have higher sales and present greater profitability.
Conservatism and Accruals: Are they Interactive? Evidence from the Greek Capital Market
Panagiotis E. Dimitropoulos
International Journal of Business and Management , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/ijbm.v3n10p113
Abstract: A large body of accounting research in the past has documented the existence of conservatism and timeliness of income recognition as distinct factors which affect the returns-earnings relation. However, earnings are not the only measure of financial performance that is affected by conservatism. The aim of this paper is to examine the impact of conservatism on accrual measures and drivers, in the Greek capital market between 1998 and 2004. Results indicated that conservatism has a significant impact on accrual measures (Total and non-discretionary accruals) but not on accrual drivers (earnings, sales, change in sales and property, plant and equipment). These findings suggest that common accrual models are misspecified, thus future research must consider the impact of conservatism in accrual models.
Activity – based costing in sport organizations:Theoretical background & future prospects
Choregia , 2007,
Abstract: Costing systems in recent years have shown a significantdevelopment and activity-based costing (ABC) specificallyhas been considered as a major contribution to cost management, particularly in service businesses. The sport sector is composed to a great extent of service functions, yet considerably less have been reported of the use of activity based costing to support cost management in sport organizations. Since the power of information becomes continuously crucial for the implementation of effective business administration, the traditional methods of cost measurementproved insufficient on this issue, leading to the invention ofABC. The aim of this paper is twofold. First of all we wantto present the main theoretical background of ABC and itssubstantiated benefits, and secondly to present some practical steps for the implementation of ABC in sport organizations.
The accounting and tax legislation of the Greek football clubs
Choregia , 2006,
Abstract: The year 1979 was a cornerstone for the football in Greece, since it practically meant the transformation of the sport’s organization from amateurism to professionalism, establishing new rules and conditions to the management of football clubs. The increased popularity of this sport and the evolutions that took place in Europe and worldwide, forced the Greek government to establish a legislative framework for the successful management of football clubs. These interventions lead to changes in many aspects of football management such as organizational and financial. The new legal environment of football management, required the organization of this sport into a more stable and professional base, following the financial standards of other corporations operating within the Greek state. By these means the government wanted to create a fair economic framework under which the football clubs would operate with common organizational, financial and tax administration rules. The aim of this paper is to present the characteristics of the new capital form establishment of the football clubs (Societe Anonyme), the main financial frame under which the new establishment has to operate and the tax obligations that originate from the aforementioned legal form.
