Title
  • Cross-Border Mergers &​ Acquisitions: A Piece of The Natural Resource Curse Puzzle
Author

Physical Description

Notes
  • We combine the resource curse literature with the literature on cross-border mergers and acquisitions (M&​As) to investigate two hypotheses, namely (i) countries with a comparative advantage in natural resources attract more M&​As in natural resource intensive sectors and (ii) countries with a high natural resource dependency attract fewer M&​As in other sectors. Using the Thomson dataset we test these hypotheses for a sample of 49 African and Latin American countries in the period 1988 - 2007. Both hypotheses were confirmed by our findings. Thus, resource dependency has a “crowding out” effect on M&​As in sectors not intensive in natural resources, and a comparative advantage in natural resources has a “crowding in” effect on M&​As in sectors intensive in natural resources.
