CALL FOR PAPERS

Countries rarely succeed in the absence of state institutions that can establish and enforce the “rules of engagement”, collect revenues, and provide public goods and services. It is likely that those in which institutions are strong, ensure the efficient allocation of resources, allow investment in higher yield activities, reduce uncertainty and friction, favor the convergence between private and social benefits, and facilitate the coordination of economics drivers. On the contrary, those in which public institutions are weak, may have several economic problems such as lower investment, slower growth in productivity, lower per capita income, and lower GDP growth.

In addition to the general traditional Tracks, BALAS 2020 Conference in Bogotá, hosted by La Salle University will set the stage to explore the answers to questions like:
  • How does a changing or unstable public institutional environment affect (international) entrepreneurial activities?
  • How do different types of underdeveloped public institutions constrain (international) entrepreneurial activities and innovation?
  • What role do public institutions play in (international) entrepreneurship?
  • How do institutions shape the conditions for (international) entrepreneurship?
  • The relationships CHINA-AMERICA and their impact in entrepreneurship and commerce

General Tracks:

  • Accounting, Taxation & Control Systems

  • Corporate Finance
  • Culture, Social and Ethical Issues
  • Economics and Global Issues
  • Entrepreneurship and Family Business
  • Financial Markets, Investment and Risk Management
  • Information Systems, Technology Management and Operations
