Pomen managementa na dereguliranem maloprodajnem trgu elektri ne energije v Sloveniji = The Importance of Management in the Deregulated Retail Electricity Distribution Market in Slovenia
Drago Papler,Stefan Bojnec
Management , 2006,
Abstract: This paper underlines the importance of management in the deregulated retail electricity distribution market, entrepreneurship and business behaviours toward consumers’ satisfaction with quality of services. The coefficients of concentration indicate a high concentration of electricity suppliers and users in the deregulated electricity retail market for industry. The production function reveals the importance of education and electricity infrastructure, and to a lesser extent of capital intensity, in labour productivity growth in the retail electricity distribution enterprise. Electricity demand in industry is determined positively by real income growth and negatively by real electricity price increases. Multivariate factor analysis confirms two main common components of efficient retail electricity supply and satisfaction of consumers in industry. In the first group of factors of efficient retail electricity supply the highest weights are for consumption, quality of services, expenses and advice. In the second group of factors of consumers’ satisfaction the highest weights are for response, needs, reliability and personnel. The impacts of changes in the dynamics of competition in the deregulated retail electricity market on management and organisational behaviours are found significant for quality of services, marketing and marketing strategies, supply-chain and customer relationship management.
Dejavniki povpra evanja po visoko olskem izobra evanju v Sloveniji = Higher Education Demand Factors in Slovenia
Ziga Cepar,Stefan Bojnec
Management , 2007,
Abstract: This article deals with the higher education demand factors in Slovenia. We present an empirical application of the demand models, and based on the estimates of the models’ parameters, we develop the most appropriate empirical higher education demand model for Slovenia. The model includes socio-economic, demographic and institutional factors. We discovered an important role of scholarship management, material conditions and demographic processes. The results of the analysis confirm that private and public goals in the field of higher education interweave, which is a special challenge for the management of education.
The Number and Size of Firms: Why So Big a Difference?
Stefan Bojnec,Ana Xavier
Managing Global Transitions , 2004,
Abstract: The number of firms and their size are analysed for the Slovenian manufacturing sector on the basis of the firm-level evidence of the Business Register of Slovenia virtually representing all the firms in activity. A remarkable difference is found between the number of the registered manufacturing firms and the number of firms with employment. The increase in the number of all registered firms is remarkable, but it is less so for the number of firms with employment, suggesting that many more firms were being registered than were in reality economically active. The large majority of newly registered firms during the 1990s were firms without any recorded employment. Whilst the number of firms increased, the number of employees declined, the average manufacturing firm size measured by employees per firm declined. Private firms constitute the vast majority of the firms in activity at end of the 1990s and afterwards.
Globalization of Slovenian Agricultural and Food Trade
Stefan Bojnec,Darja Majkovic
Managing Global Transitions , 2006,
Abstract: This paper analyses globalization patterns in the Slovenian agricultural and food trade. It examines prevailing trade structures and trade types to study differences and similarities in trade specialization patterns between primary and processed agricultural and food products across product groups, over time and in comparison with some other European Union countries.We distinguish agricultural and food trade flows by the degree of processing on primary, processed and other agricultural and food products separately for direct household consumption and for industry. With this, we add to the existent literature for Slovenia and for other new European Union members this product classification. Most of Slovenian agricultural and food trade is in the processed products. One-way or inter-industry trade dominates Slovenian agricultural and food trade structures. Within the matched two-way or intra-industry trade the significance in specialization is on low-quality vertical intra-industry trade. This kind of trade types in agricultural and food trade structures is not consistent with the findings for countries with developed food processing, suggesting that restructuring of the Slovenian food-processing sector has not yet been completed.
Human Capital and Economic Growth by Municipalities in Slovenia
Matjaz Novak,Stefan Bojnec
Managing Global Transitions , 2005,
Abstract: This article presents the analysis of the nature of economic growth of the Slovenian economy at the aggregate level and at the level of Slovenian municipalities for the period 1996–2002. The aggregate cross sectoral time series dataset and the regional cross-sectional time series dataset are used to econometrically test the significance of labour reallocation between sectors and municipalities on the nature of economic growth of the Slovenian economy. For this purpose we compare estimates of average and marginal stochastic frontier production functions. The estimated parameters of these two groups of production functions clearly indicate an inefficient use of human capital in the Slovenian economy during the analysed period. The uncompleted process of sectoral labour reallocation is found as the main factor that has a negative impact on the growth of total factor productivity in the Slovenian economy.
Technological Intensity and Patterns in Slovenian Merchandise Trade
Stefan Bojnec,Matjaz Novak
Managing Global Transitions , 2006,
Abstract: This paper analyses the technological intensity of industries classified by technology levels (low-technology, medium-low-technology, medium-high-technology and high-technology) and patterns in Slovenian merchandise trade developments between and within industries in the post-independence years since 1992. Merchandise trade flows by industries are rather homogeneous in the extent of a decline in the external trade integration measured by intra-industry trade indices and in the presence of relative trade advantages. More considerable differences are found in trade structures and trade quality using the ratio of export to import unit values. In exports we confirm the climbing-up technological development approach, including the jump-up in the medium-high-technology industries in the non-EU-15 markets. Medium-low- and medium-high-technology industries experienced greater price competitiveness in trade with the EU-15 countries. High-technology industries and to a lesser extent low-technology industries experienced a greater competitiveness in the EU-15 internal and external trade. These similarities and differences imply implications for industries with different technological intensity, which are associated with trade and policy shifts before and after the accession of Slovenia to the EU.
Journal of Central European Agriculture , 2007,
Abstract: This paper analyses the tendencies of grapes growing, wine trading and wine price competitiveness in Central European region. Croatia is net exporter of wines, Hungary is net exporter of grapes and wines, and Austria, Slovakia, and Slovenia are net importers of grapes and wines. Reductions in vineyards and increase in yields are found for Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia. More stable developments in vineyards, but decline in yields, are found for Croatia and Slovenia. Grape production increases in Austria, remains stable in Croatia, explores annual oscillations in Hungary, and declines in Slovakia and Slovenia. Export-to-import wine prices deteriorate for Austria and Hungary with most recent stabilization and price similarity, which hold also for Slovakia. Slovenian export-to-import wine prices are unstable, while Croatia experiences a bit higher export than import wine prices. Wine marketing, wine brand image of quality, and wine tourism are seen as tools to improve competitiveness in the wine sector.
U inki sistema referen nih cen na oblikovanje cen zdravil = The Effect of the Reference Price System on Prices of Medicinal Products
Romana Kajdi?,?tefan Bojnec
Management , 2010,
Abstract: The reference price system in Slovenia is used with the aim of managingand reducing public expenditures for medicinal products. Weaim to investigate whether the reference price system has had an effecton real price reductions for medicinal products. We present thereference price regulation system for medicinal products and empiricallyestimate the effect of price regulation on the development of realprices for medicinal products and its economic rationale. The mainthesis that the nominal and real prices for medicinal products have declinedduring price regulation is revealed by the Laspeyres index andWilcoxon signed ranks test, by confirming the existence of statisticallysignificant differences in prices for medicinal products. Therefore, weadopt the alternative hypothesis that prices for medicinal productshave declined during the price regulation system. The reference priceregulation system, with an efficient use of medicinal products and theirefficient supply, could have positive effects on management and reductionof public expenditure for medicinal products.
Mnenja o konkuren ni dobavi in uˇcinkoviti rabi energije = Opinions on Competitive Supply and Efficient Energy Use
Drago Papler,?tefan Bojnec
Management , 2010,
Abstract: This paper presents the unique survey results on knowledge and perceptionsof energy users on competitive supply and efficient energyuse. In the survey, results are included for the four target groups ofusers from social sciences, natural sciences, electroenergy, and energymanagement. As the methods of analyses are used descriptive statistics,comparison of average values for two independent samples, correlation,regression, and multivariate factor analyses. The empiricalresults indicate similarities and differences in the opinions among theprofessional users’ groups with a special focus on the opinions of thesocial science group. Among the common factors for the competitivesupply and efficient energy use three groups of factors are identified:sustainable development in the efficient energy use, price competitivesupply of energy, and energy sustainable development of the economy.
