Risk attitude, product innovation, and firm growth. Evidence from Italian manufacturing firms

Marco Cucculelli and Barbara Ermini

Economics Letters, 2013, vol. 118, issue 2, 275-279

Abstract: We study the impact of individual risk attitude on the relationship between product innovation and firm performance, in a model of firm growth with endogenous product selection. We exploit a unique dataset collecting firm-level data on new product introductions and individual attitudes towards risk elicited from a lottery.
