Resource description

The authors examine institutional effects on market behavior by developing and testing hypotheses about the effects of two dominate institutions, the nation-state and the multinational corporation, on market diversification. Analysis of diversification in the Indonesian leasing industry between its establishment in 1975 and 1995 shows that diversification into leasing markets by state-owned firms and US multinationals is mimicked by other firms in the industry. In contrast, firms in the industry avoid following Japanese multinationals into leasing markets. In addition, these institutional effects vary with time: dominant institutions shape market behavior during the earlisest stages of industrial growth, but theri influence on behavior wanes as an industry ages.
