– Botrić (2006) applied the paneldata estimation method to identify the main FDI determinants in the seven South Eastern European (SEE) countries in the period of 1996–2002. They found that the FDI inflows in these countries are determined by the
“reforms” prominent in the EU – IMF agenda. Slow recovery throughout the EMU and a still less favourable economic outlook for countries like Greece or Italy, however, challenge this approach and point to the need of empirical insight. Relying on paneldata

results, based on the Similarity Analysis We have already mentioned that our raw paneldata consists of 4 banks with 10 variables for 10 years. Fortunately, there are no missing data (see in Appendix ). We investigate only the banks to compare them to
Labour-market analysis places much emphasis on the concept of search. But there is insufficient empirical information on (a) the relationship between reported job-search and job-finding and (b) how search behaviour changes over a spell without work. We investigate these issues using a sample constructed from Hungarian labour-force survey panel data of the flow from jobs to the state of “joblessness”. The results on job exits call into question aspects of the standard international classification of “unemployment”and being “out of the labour force”. Transitions during joblessness in and out of search and among the various categories of non-search are found to be only modest.

Technical efficiency in agriculture of 10 new EU member states is analysed by Data Envelopment Analysis and econometric panel data analysis. Technical efficiency in agriculture is significantly positively associated with agricultural factor endowments, average farm size, farm specialisation, small-scale farms, and technological change. Foreign direct investments have an ambiguous effect. Reform and institutional developments, large-scale privatisation and price liberalisation, and urban- rural income gap are associated with technical efficiency in agriculture positively. An increase in technical efficiency in agriculture and the development of the rural economy are seen as a strategy to boost the level of living standards in agriculture and in rural areas.
This paper tests new implications of the asymmetric tax competition model on diesel excise taxes. We extend the standard tax competition model by replacing the unit demand assumption with iso-elastic demand. As a result, not only the level of the equilibrium tax, but also the slope of the tax reaction function depends positively on the size of the country. The new implication is tested on panel data in first differences for 16 countries of Western Europe. The results provide strong evidence for strategic interaction in the setting of diesel excises and confirm the effect of country size on the response to tax changes in neighbouring countries. Strategic interaction between EU countries intensified in the mid-1990s and drove small European countries to set lower diesel tax rates. These results explain why the EU’s minimum tax policy has failed to harmonise diesel tax rates.
