Brown bag seminari

Brown bag seminari su neformalne radionice u trajanju od sat vremena s ciljem prezentiranja istraživanja u različitim fazama izrade (ideje, zaokruženi teorijski okvir, provedena empirijska istraživanja, itd.). Seminari imaju cilj promicanja diskusije i stvaranja stimulativnog okruženja usmjerenog konstruktivnoj raspravi između izlagača i sudionika seminara.

Osnovna ideja jest stvoriti platformu na kojoj će zaposlenici EFZG-a, ali i poneki gosti, dobiti priliku prezentirati ideje i članke na kojima rade u sklopu svog znanstveno-istraživačkog rada.

Raspored seminara

  • 3. srpnja 2018., 14:00 sati, dvorana 51:

Izv. prof. dr. sc. Jasminka Pecotić Kaufman (Katedra za pravo) prezentira istraživačku ideju "Geneza sustava zaštite tržišnog natjecanja u Hrvatskoj - pravna i ekonomska analiza".

      • SAŽETAK: Three basic questions are being asked here: How was the system for the protection of competition in the market put in place in Croatia? How it evolved? Is it efficient today? In order to answer those questions we first plan to interview the key stakeholders, around twenty persons in total (September 2018). At this stage (June 2018), we are in the process of drafting questions for the interviews. The project will give an important documentary account of the process of setting up a new antitrust regime in a post-socialist, transitional economy setting, as well as of its evolution. However, it is the subsequent analysis of the gathered evidence that will hopefully provide us with many important insights about crucial milestones in the system development, and relevant factors that helped shape the system as we know it today. Finally, our aim is to identify weak spots by studying the systems’ development in order to be able to give policy recommendations.

Doc. dr. sc. Tanja Slišković (Katedra za organizaciju i menadžment) prezentira članak u nastajanju Slišković, Phillips i Tipurić (2018) „It’s Lonely at the Top for Men - a Gendered Perspective on Managerial Social Networks“.

      • SAŽETAK: We argue that gender roles influence managers’ evaluation of professional social network ties. Analyzing perceptions of competence and affective comradery in the professional social networks of female and male managers, we observed how these factors related to upward career mobility for men and women. We show that women occupying high positions in organizational hierarchies have more relationships underlined with affect and evaluate their network members as more competent. For men, the opposite is true: the higher up in the organizational hierarchy they are, they report less competent network members, and less affect in their networks. To further strengthen our argument, we conducted interviews with senior managers, and ran an experimental study surveying 400 participants, where we used a vignette describing female and male managers and their evaluation of competence and affective trustworthiness of their peers. The mixed-methods approach enabled us to have a triangulation of theory, qualitative data and quantitative social network analysis, corroborating our arguments.

Doc. dr. sc. Velibor Mačkić (Katedra za ekonomsku teoriju) prezentira članak u nastajanju Mačkić, Rogić Dumančić i Cota (2018) „The role of competitiveness, cronyism and regulation in the new EU member states: Rules rather than discretion“. Rad je rezultat istraživanja u sklopu HRZZ projekta br. 5476 „Uloga strukturnih reformi u poticanju vanjske konkurentnosti zemalja Europske unije“.

      • SAŽETAK: This paper investigates the role of cronyism and government regulation in the competitiveness of the eleven new EU member states from 2007-2016. The results imply that cronyism has a negative effect on competitiveness and, due to that, higher government regulation corrects for these ‘crony externalities’ ensuring higher competitiveness. The relevance of the results extend beyond this sample since they highlight that minimizing inefficiencies in the public sector and its connections with economic agents in the private sector (lowering the cronyism) are detrimental in achieving overall competitiveness. Having in mind our results, an exclusive focus on the wages, prices, and exchange rates when examining competitiveness of economies might indeed be a dangerous obsession.
  • 12. lipnja 2018., 14:00 sati, dvorana 51:

Doc. dr. sc. Šime Smolić (Katedra za makroekonomiju i gospodarski razvoj) prezentira članak u nastajanju Smolić, Čipin i Mudražija (2018) „Health risk factors and health utilization among older Europeans“. Rad je rezultat istraživanja u sklopu SHARE projekta.

      • SAŽETAK: In this paper we explore how living alone is associated with key indicators of health behaviour (smoking, drinking, physical activity, obesity, and healthy diet) and healthcare utilization (doctor visits, drug visits, hospitalizations) among people aged 60 and over in Europe and Israel. We focus on assessing how differences in respondents’ sociodemographic characteristic and family circumstances explain variation in healthcare practice and health-related behaviours. In addition, we explore possible nonlinearities in the relationships of interest by age, in particular as it relates to possibly larger adverse effects of living alone on health outcomes at the advanced old age. Finally, we examine whether and how different national contexts shape the relationships of our interest. What varies across countries are social-cultural and policy contexts and prior research suggests that individual and family behaviour are affected by public policies.
