Recent Developments in Transaction Cost Economics
Sophia Ruester1

Abstract This working paper provides a summary on transaction cost economics (TCE) and recent developments thereof. After an introductory discussion of TCE’s role within the field of New Institutional Economics, a critical analysis of the contribution of the existing body of empirical literature is conducted. In recent years, researchers have continued to develop and extend TCE. Williamson (1991b) introduces the shift parameter framework which investigates how the optimal choice of governance changes in response to dynamics in the institutional environment. Nickerson (1997) develops the positioning-economizing perspective arguing that decisions regarding market position, resource investments, and governance mode are interdependent and determined simultaneously. A number of authors came up with an increasing interest in relational institutional arrangements arguing that TCE may overstate the desirability of complex long-term contracts and vertical integration in exchange settings where a substantial hold-up potential is present.

National First - EAR EAR = (1+(Prime Rate +6.75%)/2)^2-1 EAR = (1+(3.25% + 6.75%)/2)^2–1 EAR = (1+.10/2)^2–1 EAR = (1.05)^2-1 EAR = 1.1025-1 EAR = .1025 EAR = 10.25% Regions Best - EAR EAR = (1+13.17%/12)^12-1 EAR = (1+0.010975)^12-1 EAR = (1.010975)^12-1 EAR = 1.13995-1 EAR = 0.13995 EAR = 13.995% EAR = 14%   2.

The funds will be obtained through a commercial loan and by issuing corporate bonds. Here is some of the information regarding the APRs offered by two well-known commercial banks. Bank APR Number of Times Compounded National First Prime Rate: 3.25% + 7.75%= 11% Monthly Regions Best 12.57% Semiannually 1. Assuming that Coca Cola is considering loans from National First and Regions Best, what are the EARs for these two banks? (15 pts) Bank EAR National First 11.57% Regions Best 12.97% See Excel attachment for calculations 2. Based on your calculations above, which of the two banks would you recommend and why? Explain your rationale. (15 pts) Based on the calculations above I recommend Coca Cola obtain a loan from National First Bank. Although the decision can be based on the APR, the EAR is the most accurate interest rate because it takes into account compounding and expresses the true interest paid on the loan. The EAR for Regions Best Bank is 12.97% while National First Bank has an EAR of 11.57%, because National First Bank has the lower interest rate of the two it is the more logical choice since their loan option will charge less interest for the life of the loan. 3. Coca Cola has decided to take a $6,980,000 loan being offered by Regions Best at 8.4% APR for 7 years. What is the annual payment amount on this loan? Show your......

International Project Finance

...International Project Finance Globalization, large scale production and chains of multinationals have become very common in today’s world. Due to this, any business that has to survive and compete with others on a global level has to come up with new and innovative projects to give it an edge above its competitors. Here, we are not talking about projects on a small or medium scale. We are talking about huge multimillion dollar investments in a large scale project as only then can a business make its mark on the world economy. The main cause of people hesitating to do such huge projects is that they do not have enough financial back up to go through with plans involving such huge investments. Since, in the end, every brilliant project plan is dependent on the finance required to carry it through, financing of such a project becomes the primary concern of any planner. The financing must be done prudently so that the best of the financial instrument can be used while the negatives avoided as far as possible. Every financial instrument is applicable for certain projects. Choosing such instrument should be the focus of any project since the project will only remain on paper and never be carried out unless there is financial aid. In the present day, there are many unique financial law solutions for funding large scale projects. Following are some of them described in brief: * Project Finance Loans: Project Finance is a kind of loan structure wherein the repayment is......

Project Finance

... Project Finance By Godfred Kwame Abledu Abstract Project financing is largely an exercise in the equitable allocation of a project’s risks between the various stakeholders of the project. Indeed, the genesis of the financing technique can be traced back to this principle. Roman and Greek merchants used project financing techniques in order to share the risks inherent to maritime trading. A loan would be advanced to a shipping merchant on the agreement that such loan would be repaid only through the sale of cargo brought back by the voyage (i.e. the financing would be repaid by the ‘internally generated cash flows of the project’, to use modern project financing terminology). The purpose of this paper therefore is to provide an overview of Project Finance. The paper touched on the Motivation for the increased reliance on project financing to fund investments, advantages that project finance has over traditional corporate finance, the major short-comings of project finance and a typical project finance transaction. Table of Contents Assignment 1 1 Abstract 2 A. Introduction 4 B. Why is project financing being increasingly relied on to fund investments? 4 C.

Finance Project

...Financial Project Five years ago I bought a house for $171,000. I made a down payment of $35,000 therefore taking out a loan for $136,000. I am now five years into a 30 year loan that has a 5.6% fixed interest rate and would like to pay more. After receiving a bank statement I found I have a $121,259.44 balance left on my loan. I have been thinking about switching jobs or picking up a part time job since I am just making enough money to cover my expenses and I want to pay off my loan faster. I have also given thought to refinancing my house and whether it is worth it. Is paying a little extra monthly, therefore reducing my loan by five years (option 1), worth it? Should I refinance instead (option 2)? I did my research and what I found surprised me. Currently I have twenty five years left on my mortgage but I would like to pay it off in twenty. Since I am tight on money I had to find exactly how much extra money I would need to pay every month to shorten my loan to 240 payments or twenty years. If I pay an extra $90 a month towards my principle, I will shorten my loan to twenty years and save about $23,914 in interest. This is very reasonable because before I would have paid about $104,310 solely in interest over the remaining life of the loan. I believe it is a waste to pay so much of the loan directly towards interest, by paying an extra $90 per month I am able to drop this total interest to about $80,397. I can easily see myself working couple hours a week to pay......

Finance Project

...Please make sure you have the correct answers to your Week 6 Finance Project. I will be looking for these numbers when grading your work. 1. Explain how much additional money you would need to add to your monthly payment to pay off your loan in 20 years instead of 25. The principle = $112,242.47, the interest rate = 5.75%, loan period = 20 years. You should be able to compute the new monthly payment based on these numbers. Then the new monthly payment - the current monthly payment gives the additional amount of money. You may ignore the escrow payment $211.13 and the total payment $917.25 for this project. 2. Explain whether or not it would be reasonable to do this is if you currently meet your monthly expenses with less than $100 left over. Use the answer from part 1 to explain. You earn the points as long as your arguments make sense. 3. It might be possible to pay the current balance off in 20 years if you refinanced the loan at a lower interest rate. The interest rate that you qualify for will depend, in part, on your credit rating. Identify the highest interest rate you could refinance at in order to do this and determine the interest rate that would require a monthly total payment that is less than your current total payment. Also, refinancing costs you $2000 up-front in closing costs. The principle = $112,242.47, loan period = 20 years. You are looking for the highest interest rate (it is lower than 5.75% of course) which makes your monthly......
