Political Instability And Untimely Dissolution: Partnerships, Corporations, And The Mexican Revolution, 1910-1929
Source: Harvard Business School
This paper is part of a broader research project on the economic impact of the Mexican Revolution. In this paper the authors make an initial approximation of the effect of the Revolution on the lifespan of companies, using documents by which these companies were started, modified, and dissolved, which are filed in the Mexico City Notarial Archive between 1901 and 1930. They believe that rates of company startups and dissolutions reflect entrepreneurs' perceptions of the economic environment and the effect of this environment on company lifespan. Analyzing these variables can yield interesting insights into the current economic situation as well.
