Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to deliver insight from the concept of destructive entrepreneurship to program design considerations in conflict regions.

Design/methodology/approach

This paper discusses and connects destructive entrepreneurship – an important yet largely unexplored question in the entrepreneurship literature – with security policy, related to evolving directions in the counterinsurgency literature and the traditional disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) literature.

Findings

Counterinsurgency is increasingly the approach used by international and domestic policymakers when dealing with regional conflict, and DDR processes have been used for decades to transition former combatants into civilian life. Three broad considerations are particularly salient (timing/sequencing/phasing, benefits and beneficiaries, and measurement) for DDR programs in the counterinsurgency context.

Practical implications

An incentives-based approach to understanding destructive entrepreneurship can provide useful insights for these two approaches and in particular, how they can be used together.

Originality/value

This paper expands the current scope of understanding of destructive entrepreneurship to the previously unconnected security policy contexts related to counterinsurgency and DDR.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to study the efficiency of capital allocation, across levels of ownership, in the aftermath of pro‐market reforms in India.

Design/methodology/approach

The paper measures investment efficiency using the accelerator principle and examines the effect of ownership type on capital allocation.

Findings

No significant improvement in capital allocation during the period studied is found. The findings suggest firms face significant costs in adjusting their capital stock.

Originality/value

The paper uses unique data to estimate the elasticity of capital with respect to output.
