Co-author(s): Amol M. Joshi (Wake Forest University), Todd M. Inouye (University of Hawaii at Hilo), Jeffrey A. Robinson (Rutgers University)

Published in Entrepreneurship for Social Change, 2021

In 2017, U.S. federal agencies awarded over $86 billion in contracts to small businesses owned by members of under-represented groups (minorities, women, service-disabled veterans, and certified businesses located in economically distressed areas). The vast scale and scope of public procurement coupled with policies for supporting small disadvantaged businesses may drive federal agencies towards greater inclusiveness… Read more

Conflict Framing, Multilateral Leadership, and Coalition Formation in International Trade Disputes, 1995-2011

Co-author(s): Amol M. Joshi (Wake Forest University), Nandini Lahiri (American University)

Published in Trade Negotiations and Global Relations: Emerging Players and Actors, 2020

We examine how conflict framing and multilateral leadership influence coalition formation among World Trade Organization (WTO) member nations. We hypothesize that complainants’ framing of alleged violations and leadership in global governance affects WTO members’ propensity to form coalitions by joining disputes as third parties. After introducing new measures for quantifying framing and leadership, we analyze 308 product-related trade disputes (1995-2011). We find economically significant effects for… Read more

Counteracting Globalization’s Skeptics: How Diasporas Influence the Internationalization Preferences of Minority Entrepreneurs’ Firms

Co-author(s): Todd M. Inouye (University of Hawaii at Hilo), Amol M. Joshi (Wake Forest University), Jeffrey A. Robinson (Rutgers University)

Published in Global Strategy Journal, 2020

We argue that the anti‐immigrant backlash sparked by globalization’s skeptics isolates U.S. minority entrepreneurs as outsiders, which constrains their domestic business opportunities.In response, these entrepreneurs leverage their shared ethnic identities as insiders within diaspora networks to pursue international expansion opportunities focused on their countries or regions of origin. We hypothesize that diasporas imprint minority entrepreneurs with risk preferences that reduce their skepticism about globalization, while increasing… Read more

How Do Legal Surprises Drive Organizational Attention and Case Resolution? An Analysis of False Patent Marking Lawsuits

Co-author(s): Amol M. Joshi (Wake Forest University)

Published in Research Policy, 2018

Legal surprises are unexpected suits or actions in which plaintiffs rely on claims or precedents that may be obscure, unfamiliar, or unknown to the defendants. Our study explores false patent marking suits, a unique type of patent-related legal surprise involving allegations of defendants marking products with ineligible patent numbers to deceive customers and/or deter competitors. An abrupt shift in U.S. Federal Courts’ interpretation of intellectual property rights (IPRs) policy amplified plaintiff incentives for filing these suits while… Read more
